Neither your yeast, aeration or crystal malt are causing these high FG's. I've used 2 lbs of
crystal 60L in a mild/brown ale OG 1.040 FG 1.011 mashing at 154 and using nottingham. I would
only mash at...
Posted in thread: Anyone use Nottingham dried yeast? on 05-09-2006 at 12:22 AM
I was told that a more flavorful yeast ought to be used for a bitter. I've used the english ale
yeast from white labs in the past...is there something similar in dry form? I've looked at the
Posted in thread: Anyone use Nottingham dried yeast? on 05-08-2006 at 06:17 PM
What styles of ale is Nottingham good for? I wanted to make a bitter, but I don't know if this

I've yet to brew outside and I don't see it in the near future. Of coarse, I use the stove top
rather than any type of stand alone burner. But if you get creative you can easily do full
boils, and all...
