I dont have my brew log handy but i think my CBs usually finish around 1.010 or a little higher. I'm surprised yours is so low but it isn't too far off.

My extract bacthes are 1.010-1.012. My BIAB batch went to 1.006. It is delicious.

Interesting that you said that. This was my first batch of this from all grain. Maybe an increase in mash temp is a good idea? To keep the FG a little higher.

My temps dropped during mash. If you maintain 154 it should finish higher than 1.006. Someone back me up here.

Edit: I just looked at page one. BM shows an FG of 1.008. Looks like I wasn't that far off. I also just checked my notes, mine finished at 1.005 not 6.

I thought the extract version was really good, but the all grain is even better! Will be brewing this recipe several times as i nail down my process.

I kegged 9.5 gallons today. The batch was brewed on 9/18/12. I missed my numbers a little as it was my first all AG batch. I used S-05 for 5 gallons and notty on 4.5 gallons. Non-carbed I clearly prefer the S-05. Due to global warming my tap water was hitting 78 degrees in september. Thus, I pitched at 79 degrees. I put the carboys in fridge and got them down in the mid 60's within a day. I'm not giving up on notty until I correct some of my other rookie AG mistakes. I would guess that day at 78 degrees created some off flavors in such a fast fermenting yeast. Notty was done in 3 days....done. S-05 took 6-7 days to finish. Both yeast started within 6 hours the notty was started faster. The recipe was exactly what I was looking for. I have several BMC+ friends and this will impress them. Should have went AG a longtime ago. Thanks for the recipe.

Notty is my least favorite of what I've tried in this recipe so far. Brewing Sunday with WLP001 since the LHBS doesn't have 1056, which has been my favorite, but this is a last minute brew day.
