I just brewed this yesterday, ended up with about 4.8 gallons in the fermenter, OG was 1.048. I also used washed yeast from the last time I made this, and it's already going crazy 12 hrs later.

Thanks,
You can use 1, as the gravity isn't that high, and will be plenty of yeast.

I'd skip nottingham though, and use something cleaner like US 05.

I use one package of Notty when I make this, ferment at 65 and can go grain to glass in about 10 days. No esters to speak of and it clears nicely after a couple days in the keg.

Your other option is to try out a saison yeast. I have heard of people here in Hawaii fermenting at rather high temps. If you could keep the house/room you are fermenting in at about 75-80 you should be fine. Might get some funky Belgian-ness, but that could turn out good!
Speaking of Belgian-ness, I just had a Schlafly Golden Ale and was inspired to possibly try this recipe with a Belgian yeast. I think this beer would pair well with a belgian yeast. What belgian yeast do you guys think would really shine with this recipe other than a saison yeast?

I'm about to keg mine this afternoon

I know this has been sufficiently proven but DAMN THIS IS GOOD! It even won over my father in law who is a die hard lager man. I forgot to add any irish moss so it's a bit hazy but it sure does taste good. I didn't tap the keg till it had aged for 6 weeks (was in primary for 3 weeks) and I don't think it will last long. I had 3 after mowing the lawn yesterday. So refreshing and you can still function since its low ABV. Properly good stuff BierMuncher!

Hi guys, i just brewed a five gallon batch of this ale on sunday which was my first attempt at all grain. I hit the temps and hydrometer reading right on the nose and am currently waiting patiently for it to ferment. My question was if anyone had tried this recipe with honey and if so what kind and whether the honey was put into the boil or primary. Thanks for your time!

If you just want to up the abv you can toss the honey in the end of the boil. It will dry your beer out some with minimal to no taste.

I have heard you can toss the honey in after primary fermentation and it will retain some taste but very little. I'm sure there's plenty of thread about using honey but the recipe really doesn't need anything else. It is essentially liquid perfection.
