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 ReviewsExcellent Yeast...This is a very active, fast-starting yeast. Pitched it dry (11g) into a California common (Steam) wort (5gal). It started within 6 hours and I could see it was going to be active... 2" creamy, white foam by 8 hours. Overnight, it blew right through the airlock (never saw that before) and I had brown splatter on the ceiling (with 12" of headspace). _x000D_Caution: use a blowout tube with this yeast... airlocks can't contain it.March 3, 2012Nice 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, 2013Old 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, 2013great dry yeastI always have this and us-05 on hand, clean ferments, one of the best dry yeasts.January 24, 2014good ale yeastI always have a pack of this on hand. If you ferment in the low to mid 60's you'll have a pretty clean beer. The price is good too.October 30, 2010Clean and reliableI also keep a couple of extra packs on hand and so far have never had a failed pitch. It has been very consistent and clean so far. If you haven't tried it yet, go for it...you'll like it.March 11, 2011GreatI 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, 2016Excellent!This is a very good yeast product. It is very versatile and you can't beat the end result!October 1, 2012Like yeast on steroids!!!!I brewed an IPA (with IBU of 93) with this yeast, and it delivered as advertised and more. The attenuation was spectacular, and finished clean, which allowed the true flavor of the malt & hops to standout out. This beer drew rave reviews from all who tasted, and has become my flagship homebrew. Of course, $3.99 is a bit expensive for dry yeast, but I won't hesitate to purchase again when brewing my IPA!October 19, 2012Makes a good dry ciderI have read only positive things about this yeast and I was hoping this one would be able to bring the gravity all the way down to 0.998, and it did. The bulk of fermentation lasted for a very long time but this was a cider and is probably normal (about 8 days!). Knowing how versatile this yeast is and its neutral flavor makes it a good choice for many brews.November 1, 2012

Browse 1 question Browse 1 question and 4 answersI filter my wort before bottling. How much of this yeast should I add to my 5 gal brew after filtering to properly carbonate my bottled beer?BEST ANSWER: This will likely depend on the efficiency of your filtering, as well as how much patience you have. If your filter is not extremely efficient, you may not need to add any at all, as there will still be small amounts of yeast - enough to carbonate. Remember that yeast, provided sugar to eat, will reproduce. Maybe take a dab of trub from the fermenter (less than the packet's worth) and mix that in instead if you're worried about it? At most, add 1 packet.
