Ready to try your hand at a Dry English Ale? Then this is the yeast for you! 

Nottingham Dry Yeast is the prefered yeast for English Style Beers, but it is an extremely high performing and versatile strain, allowing it to be used in beers across the spectrum. Even though it's a great choice for traditional styles such as Pale Ales, Ambers, Stouts and Porters, it is far from limited to these classics. Nottingham will also perform well in Golden Ale, Kölsch, Lager-style beers, IPAs, Barleywines and others.  It is appreciated for it’s ability to quickly produce a vigorous fermentation, and forms a compact yeast cake at the bottom resulting in a lovely clear beer. 

Beer Styles: Wide variety of ales
Aroma: Fruity, estery, neutral
Attenuation: High
Fermentation Range: 50-72°F
Flocculation: High
Alcohol Tolerance: 14% ABV

*See the technical data sheet below for information on rehydration, usage and storage.

Nottingham yeast will attenuate a brew to just short of dry. Good all around product and the fermentations are nothing less than spectacular.

Agressive fermenter, fantastic flavor for Scotch ale
If we're doing it right, we learn every time we brew. This yeast isuper aggressive and results in a very clean flavored result (at least with my Scotch ale). Some important notes...for a five gallon batch:
* Use something bigger than a 5 gallon fermenter; it's going to foam up A BUNCH
* Start with a blow-off tube and switch to a fermentation lock after about 3 days; mine blew off and it sprayed the ceiling and walls in my walk-in cooler. Lost about a gallon of wort.

Great all purpose yeast
Great all purpose yeast.
Follow simple instructions and you will be amazed at how quickly fermentation begins. Followed by very active fermentation for about four days. Complete in six days on average. Flavor and performance are predictable and fantastic. Highly recommended.

First time to use
Re-hydrated first. Pitched into primary.
Started bubbling vigorously within 24 hours.
Java/Oatmeal Stout ready to drink within days of kegging.
Will definitely use again.

Yes, high performance
Pitched a starter made with two packs into a 25 plato Wee Heavy wort. A volcanic eruption of kruesen occurred by the next morning, but slowed to normal after 24 more hours. After 6 days, fermentation seems almost complete. Gravity check showed 1.032. Leaving the beer for another few days in hope that a few more gravity points ferment out.

Will ferment anything
This is the yeast that will ferment anything. Never ever fails. But be careful in warm temps this can be extremely aggressive and a blowoff tube might be required. I like to use Notty for my winter basement fermentations. Great for Irish and Scottish ales and stouts as well.

A Must Have
This is one of the dry yeasts that is a must have to keep on hand. It attenuates well and has a nice mild English ester profile.

note to users
This yeast is a beast. Temp control in the 62 degree range is critical. Even then be prepared and install a blow off tube. When used with high og wort use even more caution.
