No - I've found Notty varies wildly from pack to pack. I did like you, split a 10-gallon batch and one finished in 2 days, the other took almost 2 weeks.

Thanks Joe.

Stupid question #2 (this is what you get when you use dry yeast for the first time in a few years). I've been doing 10 gallon batches in two better bottles, and using a smack pack in each predominantly. With this batch since I used Notty, I rehydrated the packages per Palmers instructions (2 packages in a cup of water), and poured it into the two fermenters as evenly as possible.

Is there a better way of doing this? I didn't want to pitch into the boil kettle after cooling, because of how much gets left in the trub, I didn't want to lose yeasties. Should I have had two different rehydration batches going?

All of this leads me to the thought that I've gotta get my head around doing some real starters in the future.

Oh you rehydrated the two in the same liquid? Well that's an interesting result. There's certainly nothing wrong with what you did IMO. Yeast are a living thing. Maybe one half got upset that they didn't get poured in first

Either way, I'd just not worry about it and check on them in a week.

I followed http://www.howtobrew.com/section1/chapter6-5.html which said two packets. There is a bit of activity in the airlock, but nothing like the bottle on the right.

I will leave it be and keep monitoring. If my christmas bonus beats my expectations perhaps a Conical is in my future as well. Oh the many things I would love to buy to make my mancave/brewcave/garage complete

Thanks again

I brewed this up today, with double the centennial hop additions, and it's pretty tasty from the pot. Pitched on a notty yeast cake.

Your pics made me happy, since mine was way hazy into the fermentors!

FYI, did the extract version with LE addition.

Served it at my Christmas Party this past weekend, only 4 weeks after brewing (bottled), and it was a HUGE hit. Everyone loved it!

Thanks BM.. this is going to be a staple, cheap, quick and easy.

Hi! Just a quick question:
How long should we steep the grain for on the extract version? I am assuming that's what we have to do with the Cara-Pils/Dextrine right?

Also, when I add the extract, would you suggest adding it at the beginning of the boil or at the end? Sorry about the noob questions - but would like to try and make this one~

thanks~

Someone in a previous post, put up a late extract version of the recipe. That's what I used, and it turned out fantastic. You just have to adjust your hop additions a little.
