I was just thinking about nottingham again. One of the reasons I loved it a few years ago was because it was about 1/3-1/2 the price of S04 and s05. But now it costs more (I saw it at $4 a pack!) and I think I'll stick with my favorite strains for most American ales. I always have Denny's Favorite 50 for many beers, and I use two others: Wyeast 1335 (English, plus some of my IPAs and oatmeal stout), and White Labs 001 (American beers with lots of hops) for liquid. I use S04/S05 for my dry yeast needs.
I occasionally use other strains, like for lagers or a special beer, but I can get by for about 90% of my beers with the above strains since I don't make many Belgians or other beers that need a specialty strain.
