I think I can make a final report on my first batch of this beer. In short, I like it.
Brewed on April Fool's. Malted a bit low, probably closer to 154F than 158F, everything else per recipe.
Nottingham fermented out well, did a hydrometer test at 10 days and it wasn't at FG, tested at 14 days and it was 1.009, right on the money.
Bottled at 14 days (4/15), kept at 70F for two weeks, stored in basement on 4/29 @62F.
Sampled after 1 week in basement (5/6) and it was drinkable, but clearly could be better. After three weeks in basement (5/20), it was quite enjoyable, and I think that now (6/2) it is probably at its peak.
Would I make it again? Yes. Recommend to others....well, it depends on what I know of their taste in beer.
