Nottingham Beer Dry Yeast is highly flocculant and has relatively full attenuation properties. It has a high alcohol tolerance and is great for specialty beers. It creates low concentrations of fruity and estery aromas, and is considered neutral as an ale yeast, allowing the full natural flavor of malts and hops to develop.
Recommended Fermentation Temperature: 14° to 21°C (57° to 70°F) with a good tolerance to low fermentation temperatures (12°C/54°F) that allow this strain to be used in lager-style beer.
- Highly flocculant

- Styles: Lagers, High Proof Beers
I can't note on any taste difference this would have over something like safale-05 as the beer I'm brewing with Nottingham is still fermenting (Edwort's Haus Pale Ale).
This yeast started fermenting fast and vigorously. Lots of activity and was sure glad I used a blow off tube! Reading online, some folks have had this ferment out in as little as 4 days. I'm on day day 5 right now and it's still going at a decent rate.
Overall, I'm very happy with this!
Worked great. I had no problems.
Worked as expected. No problems at all.
Wet yeasts cost a lot more so you'd assume they're a lot better, but I think it's more important to pitch at the right temperature and oxygenate the wort before pitching. I've gotten excellent results from Nottingham yeast.
Arrived as advertised and worked great!
