I have been using Nottingham for 10 years and never have had a problem.

I normall do not rehydrate.

I brew mostly in teh Spring or Fall when the Temps are around 70 F and I cast the yeast right on top of my arriated wort at about 80 F and let it cool down.

Usually it is bubbling away after 12 hours.

Example:
  • Cool wort to around 80 F. (Usually in the evening to ambent temp is in the 60s)
  • Wort cools and yeast goes to work.
  • By the time the temp is around 70 F, mid-day, it is going... and a day or so later the significant fermentation is complete.

Temp on top of the fermenter are usually 70-72 F and I do not check the internal temp.

I do 5 and 10 gallon batches this way and have great luck with the yeast.

I also keep a little around in case something has not started the way I expected,,, and cast it at 24 hours if there is no activity...

One thought about the hop muting. A lot of people on this thread have reported significant blow off with this yeast. I am wondering if some of the hop oils and other solid hop material is being pushed out with the blow off? It might be worthwhile to try this yeast on the same recipe and 2 different fermenter sizes ... One that is small enough to promote blowoff, and one that was larger and would keep the entire fermentation, krausen and all, inside the vessel.

I actually didn't have any blow out it just krept up the tube. My biggest concern was lag time. This clumpy yeast took its time. Once it was ready... BOOM!

But did you have hop muting issues as well?

Might clumped a bit, but wasn't anything super abnormal. Took a while to get going, but once it did, it chugged and chugged and then took it's time to drop the krausen.

It attenuated really well. A bit lower than US05. It has a very dry clean profile, and I used alot of whole cone hops in my boil.

Honestly, if I found lower hop aroma/flavor, it was me looking for it. I'd say that it was more rounded and softer, but could have been my hop schedule, and hops.

It did floc out tight though.. Which I'm thinking it's pulling some stuff out and down with it. This yeast might be a beast to clean up real well, IMO.

I'm giving this a try in my cream ale today. But I can't find it in beersmith2. Is there a yeast pack update somewhere that has this?

If there is, I haven't found it.

To be honest, in BS2, I'll just put US05 as the yeast. These are extremely similar, with the BRY97 being IMO, a faster working yeast, that is... once you get it going. It's got atleast 18-24 hour lag time, even with a rehydrate. But once it goes, it goes, and it floccs out really, really well. Very clean yeast, almost no character to it.

I'm using it again in a Belma Galaxy APA. It's kickin' ass right now, after taking close to a day to get going.

Just add it into Beersmith2.. You can add ingredients and their properties.
