Well behaved yeast
This is a very good yeast; I used 2 packs for a ten gallon batch of Porter and it fermented very clenly at the the lower end of its range. It didn't attenuate as far down as I expected but it was close enough and I didn't detect any residual sweetness. I'll use it again.

I brewed an English IPA and used Nottingham’s as the yeast. I did not make a slurry. I simply poured the yeast on top of the wort and aerated it for a good five minutes. Fermentation kicked off within 24 hours and had good activity for several days. The beer is bottle conditioning

Great dry yeast.
Never any problems with this yeast. More Beer always gives a good date so I can keep some on hand. Also easy to harvest for future use.

Interesting, even if fermented warm
I am a Las Vegas homebrewer with no temperature control other than my AC. My first summer brew with this yeast was during a heatwave (115F+ for a week straight). Fermentation was between 75 and 80F. I definitely got red-berry fruity esters, but they were light and very pleasant.

Very impressed for a first try
I had some serious reservations using this yeast and thinking that it would have English character. It actually does. I brewed an ESB on the high end and hopped with EKG and Fuggles. I bottle conditioned it and it flocculated very well..nice and clean. My only "drawback" with this yeast is that it ferments like a madman, which may sound great and it is, but you will need to make sure you control your temps well. It will want to go up on you. I caught it in time, but the vigorous fermentation might catch you off guard if you are one that pitches, areates and walks away for a few days. Anyway, I havested from the primary, washed it and pitched into a smoked porter. As expected, I had activity in a few short hours. Don't hesiate to give Nottingham a try. I'm glad I did!

Great yeast for English beers
I used this for a Brown Ale 5 gal, made a 1 lt starter, fermentation begun in 2 hours and it went fast and furious. Great flavor. Bought another one for an Irish Red and definitely will buy again.

A robust yeast
It is interesting for me to read the reviews. As brewers we are essentially artists and each ingredient is a tool or a color or a hue that we can use that ultimately affects our product.
So Notty is in this class... It has its place. Malty beers it excels. It is great at IPA's... but possibly US05 is better for pale ales, IPA's etc.

I bottle condition. I have noticed that Nottingham forms a wonderfully compact yeast cake at the bottom.. so that I can essentially tip the whole contents of the bottle into the glass and get a lovely clear beer (the yeast is stuck to the bottom of the bottle)! Beautiful! & Appearance often accounts for the perception of a good beer. US05 on the other hand does not flocculate so well and requires more attention when pouring. Notty I have noticed gives a pleasant taste to it that is lightly estery (it is a British yeast). US05 is very clean tasting, almost crisp, but in my hands did not flocculate as well as Notty.
It is great we have the choice!
