Y005 Danstar Nottingham Ale Dry Yeast (11 grams)

SKU: Y005

A highly versatile ale strain originally from the UK. Danstar Nottingham is another go-to yeast for many brewers. Not just for British style beers, it can be used as an alternative to American-style yeast strains. Nottingham produces a very clean fermentation that allows both malt and hop flavors to comes through.

It is also a fantastic option for hard cider, lending a smooth flavor that balances the natural tartness of apples.

High flocculation and high alcohol tolerance make this yeast perfect for bottle conditioning. Another strain to keep in the fridge for a last minute brew or as a brewing back-up plan. Gluten Free.

If 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!

Pleasantly Surprised
Have been using Safale 05 for all previous brews and always felt it imparted a flavor profile that competed with malt and hops in a way that didn't contribute to a balanced and enhanced final product. Nottingham allowed the pilsner light extract to display great malt flavor and hop profile bitterness,flavor, and subtle aroma, Great drinkable brew using the most basic ingredients, Looking forward to trying it on my next wheat batch

Couldn't be happier
Very active strain when fresh! I've innoculated a three gallon batch with less than the recommended amount (1 tsp of 11 gm pack)...12 hours later - very respectable activity. Yielded nice floral/banana notes to during fermentation. Didn't exactly drop bright after cold crashing but was not expecting it as it was a wheat beer. Nice alcohol tolerance (OG of 1.080 and FG of 1.016)!Still active enough 2 weeks after bottling to assist with secondary fermentation/carbonation in bottle. Could'nt be happier with yeast strain. Will definitely order again!

I 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.

great dry yeast
I always have this and us-05 on hand, clean ferments, one of the best dry yeasts.

Old 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.

Back up yeast
I 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.

Nice backup
I 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.

Works ok for me
I 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.

What's the alcohol tolerance of this yeast?
A shopper on Dec 5, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Alcohol tolerance should be 14%, but I've only used it to up to 9.1%.
I 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?
Marc D on Apr 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: One pkg to ferment wort(takes 7-10 days), then filter and add priming sugar to bottle, not yeast again
