Product Details

The Nottingham strain was selected for its highly flocculent (precipitating) and relatively full attenuation (transforming sugar into alcohol) properties. It produces low concentrations of fruity and estery aromas and has been described as neutral for an ale yeast, allowing the full natural flavor of malt to develop. Good tolerance to low fermentation temperatures, 14°C (57°F), allow this strain to brew lager-style beer. Optimum temp: 57°-70° F. An innovative new vacuum packaging method allows the brewer to ensure that the package is fully sealed prior to use.

reliable and clean this is one of my go to yeast for many ales, I typically set fermenter temp to 60f and it rocks. I usually get action within 5-7 hours!

Good quality yeast
If you can smell it, it's in the air. You're inhaling evaporated plasticizers. If you can smell it, it's also in contact with your beer. It's like second hand smoke.

Used this as an addition during the boil for a XX IPA that I made...added the full shot along with about 10 oz of Cascade...Turned out awesome! Beer clocked in at 11.27% and IBU ended at over 220....was the best beer I made to date...will be using again..

Quick and fast
2 weeks primary, 3 weeks secondary, 1 month bottle conditioned. Its just an ok beer. No outstanding notes or flavors. Its great if you just want something to pour down your throat and say "I made that". But its not going to impress anyone. No one ever talks about how great the store bought big box brews are at picnics, I assume this one will not be mentioned either.

Very nice dry yeast for making English style ales. Used it for a robust porter and it fermented very vigorously, with no problems reaching my target final gravity. Definitely recommended.

Great all purpose yeast
After nearly ruining a batch by improperly rehydrating, I'm sticking to Dave Miller's advice in his guide to homebrewing, and pitching it dry.

the best of two
April through November in the Kansas heat, using all pilsner ingredients. fruity with a hint of citrus, lets the malt still shine through.

More than satisfied.
Combined with my 1000 ml yeast starter kit (also Northern Brewer), the Nottingham Ale yeast is a real winner. I start the culture 48 hours prior to brew day and get great results. Primary fermentation is very strong.

Go-To Dry Yeast
Consistently works very well in a variety of beer styles and gravities. Routinely produces clean, clear beers. This is my go-to yeast for anything other than particular styles that benefit from style-specific liquid yeasts.
