While this yeast was only a few weeks old when it arrived, it did wait about 6 weeks before I brewed. When I pitched it the never expanded and 36 hours later still nothing. Dry Nottingham yeast saved this batch of beer.

One of my favorites
Love this yeast! Easily my favorite Scottish Ale yeast. Provides the great complexity and maltiness that you expect in this style. Easily handles both light and heavy versions. Just used it for a Strong Scotch Ale with an O.G. of 1.111, and it fermented down to 1.020 without any problem!
