i had the above-average delayed start times for this lot of yeast but the gravity samples have tasted normal so far

Today I had 2 packets of notty that didn't proof. It had a strange smell to it. A odd chemical smell. Northern is helping me with the problem. I proofed and pitched a windsor. They were shipped and stored together.

I told my LHBS about it too. I'm glad the bigger stores are finding out. The other Nottingham thread has a poster saying his LHBS had to pull all of this new bad lot # out of their kits and sent them back to Lallemand. Still waiting for them to acknowledge the problem.....

My previous didn't show any activity when rehydrated and was slow to start. My last one took off like expected.

Anyone know how long it took for the manuacturor to recall the last bad batch of Notty?

Was this only after brewers complained and the local brew stores sent their inventory back for analysis by the company?

It seems like a ligit, problem with many inconsistencies in this specific lot; right?

...the wheels move slowly, I guess.

I wonder if anyone has gotten a response from the Danstar people about this issue?

I know that I have not received a reply...

I gave a very detailed email with my process and outcome with no response.

I hope they're not waiting for this lot to work it's way through the gamut.

Did a 10 gal batch of Northern English Brown ale...two six gallon glass carboys. 3 piece airlocks, and anal sanitation. Pitched one packet of Notty in each one, sprinkled right in the wort, no re-hydration, as always. S.G. 1.052. 50 hours later, 1.052. Luckily had some US-04 in the frig, hopefully it will save the day! My Notty is 1080961099V, exp 12-2011 as well. Not a happy customer...

I just had a thought. I wonder how many of those who are reporting increased lag times are using campden tablets to treat their water? I have had no trouble with Notty, but the last brew, the first one I've used campden tablet, did have a longer lag time compared to the others. I don't know...just a thought.
