I did a partial boil. and did not calculate the makeup water volume/temp correctly...confess to dipping into the Harpoon a bit early..

was shooting for 70 deg, but got 64 ... is Nottingham yeast going to balk ? I figure it will just take a bit longer.

Any "records" out there for lowest temp using Nottingham ?

Nottingham will be fine at 64 degrees F. I always keep it at 64-67 degrees F and have actually heard of people keeping it as low as 55 degrees F.

I've never used Nottingham below about 58 degrees. It worked great at 58-60, and so most of my fermentations with Nottingham are done under 62 degrees. It's much "cleaner" tasting, and I really like it at those lower temps.

Notty should be fine at 70-72. It may be a bit more estery or fruity, but still fine.

Yes, that *is* beer. Water, malt, hops, and yeast mean it's beer. Go ahead and try a glass...

Yeah, my last Notty ferment was right at 60, and it blew the top off of my fermenter on day 1. No problems with temp there, mate.

The fermentation has come and gone ... I will be interested in detecting any change to the estery flavor profile. This is the lowest I have ever asked Notty to go, and good to know there is still some room at the bottom.

Brewing is a forgiving process
