DetailsIf you are looking for amazing versatility from an ale yeast, look no further than Nottingham dry brewing yeast. Nottingham offers great performance with every batch, allowing brewers to cover a wide variety of beer styles with just one yeast type.
The Nottingham strain was selected for its highly flocculant & relatively full attenuation properties. It produces low concentrations of fruity and estery aromas and has been described as neutral for ale yeast, allowing the full natural flavor of malt & hops to develop.
The recommended fermentation temperature range of this strain is 14° to 21°C (57° to 70°F) with good tolerance to low fermentation temperatures (12°C/54°F) that allow this strain to be used in lager-style beer. With a relatively high alcohol tolerance, Nottingham is a great choice for creation of higher-alcohol specialty beers!

4.3 / 5.036 ReviewsGreatI split the yeast between two batches. The first I pitched dry and fermentation picked up albeit slowly. It is still fermenting steadily. The second batch I re-hydrated the yeast, and fermentation began within 24 hours.February 12, 2016great dry yeastI always have this and us-05 on hand, clean ferments, one of the best dry yeasts.January 24, 2014Old reliable!If someone were to tell me that I could only use one yeast the rest of my life, this would be it. 100% reliable starter. Clean, neutral fermentation. I have used it up to 13.5% ABV with only one packet in 5 gallons. Guaranteed success with this one.December 26, 2013Back up yeastI use it if I have a stuck fermentation, just to lower the gravity a little more._x000D_Its pretty hearty and can do it's job. Since the beer is already mostly done, this doesn't affect the flavor profile much.September 13, 2013Nice backupI like using liquid yeast whenever I can, but this Nottingham yeast is a great back when a smack pack doesn't swell or your starter isn't cooking. The flavors are pleasantly British and the yeast flocculates well leaving a fairly bright beer out of primary.August 12, 2013Works ok for meI used this instead of s-04 and s-05 for some beers and it's ok. It attenuated and floculated well enough. Even though its dry yeast I still aerate, and I make sure to rehydrate correctly (in warm water for 15 minutes). this yeast has stalled on me a couple of times so I prefer toe S-04/5 in general.July 15, 2013Fast and great as a emegency backup yeast.I have never had a problen with this yeast. I may try lower tempratures this fall.June 27, 2013Perfect for CiderUsed it to make a quick batch of cider. Came out excellent. Will use it again on my next batch.June 17, 2013Used in a porterIt fully attenuated and the beer was balanced and overall average. Maybe it was the ingredients in the kit, but the final beer was just average. I will hold off using this yeast, and instead try others.June 11, 2013Good Neutral yeastI like that it flocculates so well, and doesn't produce fruity esters. It's a nice clean neutral yeast. I have a couple of packs for emergencies like a stuck fermentation.March 28, 2013
