Default Most aggressive yeast strain?

What is the most aggressive yeast you've ever used? For me it would have to be the Nottingham yeast I pitched 2 days ago. I have never witnessed fermentation like this before. The beer was a 1.075 og. I have used so many other strains, liquid and dry but Damn, this stuff is great. On the downside i have easily lost 1/2 to 3/4 of a gallon through the blow off tube. One last question, how quick do you think this beer could finish up? I started two days ago and get married on the 26th of this month. Is it possible? I will force carb the day before.

I have to agree with wlp099, the other is westmalle/3787/wlp530. I have sprayed the ceiling with that one.

I think the beer drinkers planning to attend the wedding will understand if you have to reschedule the event by a week or so in order to let your brew finish it.

Ahahahahahah! AWESOME line! Off to tour breweries in Seattle for my Batchelor party fellas. Wish me luck! I agree about the young co2 flavor also.

It'll be hard to get a good amount of CO2 in suspension with just one night of force carbing. If it were me, I'd rack it to a corny around 3-5 days prior. The worst that could happen is you'll have your first experience with pressureized fermentation. Biermuncher on here has some pretty in depth posts about it. Anyway, I'd rather have a well carbed green beer than a flat/over-carbed green beer.

Depends on the type of beer, in my opinion. Anything lighter than, let's say, a darker Porter (35 SRM or so) can easily go from grain to keg in less than 2 weeks without tasting too "green," especially with a mad yeast like Notty. If you brewed yesterday (11/11), you will likely be to your target FG within 4 days using Notty (11/15), at which point you can keg and start carbonating/conditioning. Let it sit for a week (11/22) to let crap settle out, pour off the first dirty pint, then taste the next. I'm willing to bet you'll be rather pleased with the results... I am every time

Second 3711. I'm going to try it on a high gravity beer soon.
