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!

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.

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.

good for English styles
I use this for all my English style ales. Always gives me a great tasting ale, have an Irish Red in the fermented now that I used this for. Has a good shelf life so it's nice to have some around to use when you need it.

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.

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.

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

Would this be a good yeast to harvest and save for future batches? Then it would be a wet... best to just buy a wet and harvest that?
James B on Feb 14, 2017

I have used Nottingham for several years. I have washed the latest purchase (2 packs) eight times and still had initial fermentation within three hours of pitching. I have sensed no off-flavors due to yeast. I plan to wash twice more (10 washes total) then buy two more packs and start again. I might even keep washing the current batch to see how long it will be viable. I tried liquid yeast and was not impressed.
