I totally hope we are done with the non-fun part. We need to get on to the trash talking part.

PTN's beer tastes like goat scrotum stew.

Sooo.... What temp are you guys fermenting at? Since notty is pretty clean I'm not expecting any nice esters so may aim low for a really clean beer and to possibly retain just a touch of diacetyl. If I can get it to stay at that specific amount where it seems to add to the body and give a hint of butterscotch I think it could work really well in this beer. Does notty throw diacetyl at all? It's been a looong time since I've used it. I'm thinking I'll set the fermenter to 62 and bottle at 10 days, taste and gravity depending.

And for full disclosure, I'm using:

Thomas Fawcett Maris Otter
Simpson's Medium Crystal
Crisp Chocolate Malt

2010 whole leaf Fuggles 4.5%AA from Fresh Hops

A packet of Nottingham lot 1089001V

Durham, NC water, filtered, adjusted to 57 ppm Ca, 2 ppm Mg, 25 ppm Na, 103 ppm Cl, 41 ppm SO4 with CaCl2 for an expected mash pH of 5.21.
