Default Substituting Safale US-05 for Nottingham in a Raspberry Wheat?

I've only brewed 2 batches so far - one with notty and the other with safale US-05. I rehydrated each and left in a jar for 15-30 mins (per palmer's book).

I took in the aroma of each prior to pitching, and I noticed the safale has a much sweeter smell to it and suspect it may suit a raspberry wheat quite well, but the recipe calls for nottingham or White Labs WLP300 Hefeweizen. I plan to brew the raspberry wheat this week.

Thoughts? I've seen many threads noting they are similar yeasts, so I guess I'm just looking for some reassurance that it would come out fine.

Using US-05 instead of Nottingham is perfectly fine. They are very similar strains so there is really nothing to worry about.

I agree, though I get a little bit more of a fruity aroma from Notty. I love 05 though, and would use it faster than Notty for the most part.

My thoughts exactly. I use 05 maybe 4:1 over Notty.
