Question about making bread

I want to make this recipe from King Arthur Flour. I have Rapid Rise yeast, not instant yeast, will that work? Also, can I mix and knead this in my kitchen aid stand mixer?

Whole wheat and oatmeal? This bread is not only good for you, its wonderful flavors will speak for themselves.

2 cups boiling water
1 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup maple sugar
1 tablespoon honey
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter
1 tablespoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon Saigon-type cinnamon
1 tablespoon instant yeast
1 1/2 cups King Arthur 100% White Whole Wheat Flour
4 cups King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour

In a large mixing bowl, combine the water, oats, maple sugar, honey, butter, salt and cinnamon. Let cool to lukewarm.

Add the yeast and flours, stirring to form a rough dough. Knead (about 10 minutes by hand, 5 to 7 minutes by machine) until the dough is smooth and satiny. Transfer the dough to a lightly greased bowl, cover the bowl with lightly greased plastic wrap, and allow the dough to rise for 1 hour.

Divide the dough in half, and shape each half into a loaf. Place the loaves in two greased 8 1/2 x 4 1/2-inch bread pans. Cover the pans with lightly greased plastic wrap and allow the loaves to rise till they've crowned about 1 inch over the rim of the pan, about 1 hour.

Bake the loaves in a preheated 360°F oven for 33 minutes.* Remove them from the oven when they're golden brown, and the interior registers 190°F on an instant-read thermometer. Yield: 2 sandwich loaves.

*If your oven can't be set at 360°F, set it at 350°F and bake the bread for 35 to 40 minutes.

Rapid rise = instant yeast.
You can mix in your stand mixer, but I still like to finish with a minute or so of hand kneading.
