Ready to try your hand at a Dry English Ale? Then this is the yeast for you! 
Nottingham Dry Yeast is the prefered yeast for English Style Beers, but it is an extremely high performing and versatile strain, allowing it to be used in beers across the spectrum. Even though it's a great choice for traditional styles such as Pale Ales, Ambers, Stouts and Porters, it is far from limited to these classics. Nottingham will also perform well in Golden Ale, Kölsch, Lager-style beers, IPAs, Barleywines and others.  It is appreciated for it’s ability to quickly produce a vigorous fermentation, and forms a compact yeast cake at the bottom resulting in a lovely clear beer. 

Beer Styles: Wide variety of ales
Aroma: Fruity, estery, neutral
Attenuation: High
Fermentation Range: 50-72°F
Flocculation: High
Alcohol Tolerance: 14% ABV

Yes, high performance
Pitched a starter made with two packs into a 25 plato Wee Heavy wort. A volcanic eruption of kruesen occurred by the next morning, but slowed to normal after 24 more hours. After 6 days, fermentation seems almost complete. Gravity check showed 1.032. Leaving the beer for another few days in hope that a few more gravity points ferment out.

Will ferment anything
This is the yeast that will ferment anything. Never ever fails. But be careful in warm temps this can be extremely aggressive and a blowoff tube might be required. I like to use Notty for my winter basement fermentations. Great for Irish and Scottish ales and stouts as well.

A Must Have
This is one of the dry yeasts that is a must have to keep on hand. It attenuates well and has a nice mild English ester profile.

note to users
This yeast is a beast. Temp control in the 62 degree range is critical. Even then be prepared and install a blow off tube. When used with high og wort use even more caution.

A dependable, complex dry yeast
I can always count on this stuff to eat up the sugars in my English styles. Makes a tasty American Pale Ale, too, running similar to the tried and true Chico strain. My only complaint is when it kicks up sulfur, but that fades after a few more weeks, and leaves a marvelous flavor profile!

Started fermentation quickly
Used to in my dry stout brew! I followed instructions for re-hydrating and about 2-3 hours after pitching started to see CO2 release from the airlock. Strong fermentation for about 3 days then transferred to secondary on the fourth day.

Great to ferment Ales at low temps.
I tried this yeast because I read in the manufacturers website that you could ferment ales at 50f,

It says: The optimal temperature range for Nottingham yeast when producing traditional styles is 10°C
(50°F)* to 22°C (72°F)

I gave that a try and brewed my best beer yet (a Cream Ale).

If you want to try fermenting an Ale at very low temps to get a clean fermentation, give this one a try.
