Just wanted to give a quick report. This beer has been in the keg for a few weeks now and is really coming into its prime. I will admit though that S-04 is not the best yeast for this beer. I fermented in the mid 60s and still get some bready flavors/aroma from the yeast because there isn't enough malt to hide it. Not bad at all though. I had some friends over yesterday that drink bud light exclusively and they kept asking for more. I consider that a success! So my only change would be to use a cleaner yeast for the next batch. I'll probably brew this one again and use US 05.

Brewed 5 gallons all grain yesterday and I struggled with mash temp (likely mashed a bit low), but hit my SG on the nose after the 75 minute boil. This is my first batch with Notty and it seems to be a slow start. I have a small krausen and a little airlock activity. I'm looking forward to a crystal clear and bright beer in a few weeks.

I brewed this yesterday too. It was my second all grain attempt. I struggled with my mash temp too. I stayed around 147-149. Everything else was pretty close.

Just brewed this last night for my first all grain brew. Went well, anxious to try it.

I used 05. Tasted hydro sample today. Pretty clean, a little bready, some clean hops, very light.

Tasted a bit bitter and cidery after a week in the keg. Slight sweetness to it though. Used Nottingham and followed the AG recipe exactly. Will the bitterness and cider flavor mellow out? Hoping I didn't get an infection.

Mine had a little bitterness to it also, it has gotten better with age. It has been in the keg for 3 weeks now. It is also the first time I have used notty, I will try it again with s-05 and see if there is any difference.

I have a sour smell, slightly, but I'm still at some krausen and only a week in the fermenter. I've two cases of another brew that will be ready soon enough, so I'm going to try my best to leave this one in the fermenter for 2+weeks.

I try to leave most of my beers in primary for 3 or 4 weeks. Just because beer is attenuated down doesnt mean there isnt still work to be done in that fermenter.

I know, I know...my pipeline isn't too strong right now, though, which makes me damn impatient. I hate buying store beer, too.
