I've got a few questions about the yeast and fermentation periods of this recipe. Re: yeast, I had to use Fleishmann's instead of Nottinghams. (I know, I know.) Would that affect the the temperature or length of primary fermentation? Re: fermentation, I've been reading that for ales some people lengthen primary and skip secondary before bottling. Any experiences with that? Right now I've got the 5-gallon extract version in primary.
This is my third beer and first post to HBT. (Total noob.) Thanks for the help!
