I brewed 10 gals. of pale ale last Friday and I split the batch into two carboys. 3 days later I had to re-pitch a second pack of yeast into one carboy and a few hours later it was bubbling away. The other batch started fermenting the first day. I had no idea about this recall until I found this thread, I will have to dig in the trash and see if one of them has the right number.

I was a little nervous using my Notty yeast yesterday. I pitched the packet I had, which of course was the recall batch. I am happy to report though that fermentation began within 24 hours. So as long as it doesnt poop out or something, all is well.

Ya know what I think is kinda sad...there is nothing about the recall on their site. I went into my LHBS today looking to get some stuff and swung through the dry yeast. There is a bin full of the recalled yeast.

I picked up a notty just to keep it around last week and wouldn't you know it is one of the bad batch.

At least I found out before I pitched it.

Pitched a packet from this batch a few days ago and fermentation took off fairly quickly. But, still have the other three packets i got at my LHBS from the same lot and will be returning those and alerting the shop about their recalled yeast.

Kudos to Danstar for letting this be known!

Thanks for the heads-up. I found one bad packet in my small stock.

Notty's reputation as a great dry yeast is obviously well earned. Here's hoping the problem is resolved. The more options, the better.

I brewed yesterday and when I went to pitch the yeast, I had 3 satches purchased at 3 different times. All from the recall lot. Still nothing today. I'm going to the LHBS tuesday on my lunch break so I'll just grab something else when I'm there and ship my other 2 back. I could probably find the one I pitched yesterday in the trash and send that one too.
