Found my high flocculating yeast! WLP002 English Ale Yeast

What do you know? I have some yeast that will fit the bill :-) It is about 9 months old so I'll definitely have to make a starter to "proof it". From the White Labs website.
WLP002 English Ale Yeast

A classic ESB strain from one of England's largest independent breweries. This yeast is best suited for English style ales including milds, bitters, porters, and English style stouts. This yeast will leave a beer very clear, and will leave some residual sweetness.

Attenuation: 63-70%

Flocculation: Very High

Optimum Fermentation Temperature: 65-68°F

Alcohol Tolerance: Medium
All I need now is a recipe. I'll probably just use the same recipe I always use for the Thanksgiving beer and substitute the yeast.
