Default REALLY fast ferment

Not worrying, just relating an experience. I brewed on the 28th..pitched nottingham dry right out of the packet. Had airlock activity within a few hours..going fast and hard enough you could hear it. Kraussen has fallen and the airlock is almost silent already. After 3 days the Beer looks as settled as the oatmeal stout thats been in the fermentor for over 3 weeks .

Man I don't understand why my Notty with the same lot# didn't act as it should, even acted weird when I rehydrated it. Well I'm glad it worked out for you.

I'll be heading right up I75 at the end of Aug. Do you know of any HBS stores in the Cleveland I can checkout while I'm there.

nope. Cleveland is 3.5 hours from me. However I think you will cut off on I71 before you get this far north.

How long did that take? 24 hrs?

I had an ultra-fast fermentation recently using Fermentis safbrew s-33. From beginning of fermentation to finish was really close to 12 hrs. I let it sit for a week but it was done. It had hit the target FG and everything.
