Nottingham fermented in the low 60s or even upper 50s FTW. Clean, clean, tasty beer; not a hint of esters. You can get something resembling a clean lager using Nottingham this way.

Almost in the boil for this recipe. Pre boil gravity came in a little high but so far going good. I'm excited for this quick turn around time batch! Will be served at the super bowl as my neutral non hoppy or porter beer!

I ended up using a re-hydrated packet of us-05. The owner of my LHBS also recommended us-05. There was another guy in the store who said he made 10 gallons of this beer for a birthday party and it was gone before the party ended, he used us-05. So that pretty much made my mind and I used us-05.

I had a long lag time with this yeast. I re-hydrated it and pitched in 60-62 degree wort. It took 18 hours to see signs of fermentation. I normally use liquid yeast with starters and the lag time is just a couple hours. Maybe the wort was too cold. Maybe I shocked the yeast a bit because they were at 80 degrees when I pitched them into 62 degree wort. Either way it all worked out and I can't wait to see how this beer turns out.

The beer should come out around 5.3% ABV because my efficiency was 85%, OG was 1.051. This will be a perfect session beer for the Super Bowl. I held a steady mash of 154 degrees for an hour and batched sparged at 170 degrees. It made for a real simple brew night due to the small grain bill, Less stirring I had to do

I am making this for the Super Bowl too. What do you expect the turn around time will be? Are you bottling or Kegging. If I keg it it will be carbed in 2 days and I can give it a longer primary time. If I bottle it I will have to rush the primary time to maybe 10 days. That should give it plenty of time to carb in the bottle.

What do you think? Maybe 7-10 days primary and 2 weeks bottle conditioning is my guess...The Super Bowl is just right around the corner

Why secondary?

Sounds good. I don't have an open keg right now so I will have to bottle. Bottling will make it easier to transport anyway, less foot traffic in my house to the kegerator.

I am making this as my first brew. I am going the extract version. Will there be any difference between Munson's extra light dme and Briess extra light dme?
