Danstar Nottingham Ale Dry Yeast

52 Review(s)

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.

Good When Fermented Right Review by Brett
Rating
This is a good yeast, when you ferment it at the appropriate temperature. I use it regularly in my robust porter recipe, and this last time around got lazy and let it ferment over 69F. When you that happens, you get really bad fruity off tastes. It has made my porter virtually undrinkable, but I am forcing myself to drink it so that with every sip I am reminded to ferment right!

If you keep it within the temperature range, this is a great dry yeast strain! (Posted on 3/6/14)
Amazing! Review by corey

First time using dry yeast... Being from San Diego I am a big supporter of white labs, but I figured I'd give this yeast a try. I rehydrated an pitched and within 2 hours I have crazy bubbling out of the blowoff. My go to yeast for a beer I want to finish quick. It's almost as quick as the San Diego super yeast. Very impressed (Posted on 3/1/14)

Great to have on hand for an unplanned brew session Review by Stephen

Great ale yeast to have on hand for all around use. If used for low temperature (lager-style beer) fermentation, consider pitching two packets. Not a great idea to make starters with dry yeast.... (Posted on 1/15/14)
