I had no doubt this would work. Believe it or not, pitching more than 1 packet of dry yeast in a 5 gallon batch is over-pitching. 1 packet is more than enough for 10 gallons.

Default Update

48 hours post pitch.
Gravity is now at 1.014. (My original FG estimate).

Seems there is still enough activity to get me another 1-2 points by the end of the day.

Conclusion - A single packet of Nottingham, properly hydrated 1-2 hours ahead of pitching, is enough to completely ferment a 10-gallon batch of medium bodied (1.052) beer in a satisfactory time frame < 72 hours.

On a slightly down note, I’d hoped to have FG at 1.014-1.016 for this style beer. Looks like the Notty is going to take me a bit drier than I’d hoped.

How long has it been since your last prostate exam?

Eat some soy in the mean time. Lots of soy.

It's good stuff.
That's why I mash high when I use it.

Taste it going into secondary and add a little malto if needed but I don't think it will be.
The OSH is a little drier than a Goblin.

Default Final Entry

72 hours post pitch and Final Gravity reached at 1.010. (Same as 12 hours prior)

Maybe for my next experiment, I'll try it with SafeALe - 05.

Or how about a smack pack or vial without a starter?

I was wondering if maybe you could bottle without priming at near FG? Especially if you knew where you wanted to end up...
