Here are my results, I posted earlier that I pitched S-04 (by mistake) in 5 gal and Notty in 5gal. Biermuncher was correct in that the s-04 was maltier, it also didnt seem to flocculate near as well, actually it never really cleared up. None the less, we drank the s-04 first grain to glass in 2 weeks (kegging), emptied the keg in 2 weeks. S-04 was quite a bit sweater up front finishing with a slight dry taste at the end. Everybody enjoyed it. Tapped notty keg 30 days after brewing, Just enjoying it now. Crystal clear, much drier, very refreshing, still needs a few more days on the gas. Summary: both were very good, infact probably one of the best beers i've brewed. We are entering the Nottingham version into the Konabrew fest next month, wish it luck, good preliminary feedback from lhbc-thanks biermuncher

I used the US 05...turned out great. I'll use it with the next batch.

Actually they don't have US 05, they only carry White Labs yeast.

I dont think you can go wrong with WL002 or even 001. I always keep 002 on hand. Heres a link to their website in case you want to try to match one of their other yeast with Notty.

Also this link has a styles page so you can see what yeast strains fit best with the style of beer your making. I have a big chart that is similar my LHBS gave me.

Can't Go wrong with California Ale yeast WLP001. If you want to change things up you could try their Kolsch WLP029 or the Cream Ale yeast blend WLP080: This is a blend of ale and lager yeast strains. The strains work together to create a clean, crisp, light American lager style ale. A pleasing estery aroma may be perceived from the ale yeast contribution. Hop flavors and bitterness are slightly subdued. Slight sulfur will be produced during fermentation, from the lager yeast.

thanks for the heads up about the 080... I'm looking for ways to create the basic beers I want without getting into lagers.. and two of the three are lagers...

Will conditioning or long ferments clean up the sulfer? How noticeable is it?

Is there an ale yeast out there that mimics the light euro lager styles?

I actually haven't used it! I was just looking at the white labs site. As I re-read the description it sounds like steam ale yeast, but the ferm range is normal for ales (where the steam ale yeast is at like 60 i believe). I would think that cold conditioning would diminish the flavors, or it might just be alluding to the smells coming out of your fermentor during fermentation. So I guess I was asking you to experiment! haha
