Yeah, I sent 4 packets back over 4 weeks ago and no word yet. I won't buy again if I don't hear something from them. To bad I really liked the yeast

It sucks. I dont think im completely done with Notty, but I will definitely at least think twice and get worried at the prospect of pitching it. Im in college, I cant afford to pay 40-50 dollars on ingredients that get ruined by this small pack of yeast. At least the one I just used seems to be working for me.

This is a copy of an emailed response I received about the yeast situation. I had 3 bad packets and sent them in months ago like they told me. I still have not received a thing back. The more I think about my infection (bandaid flavor, odor) issues, every one except one used notty yeast. I will never touch the stuff again. I can't be sure that the yeast was the problem but I'm not chancing it any more, I have dumped hundreds of dollars worth of beer already.

"We received your shipment.

I will send you 5 sachets. Sorry for the delay, we were waiting for new sachets. I hope that everything will have left before next week.

Best regards

Marie Coppet"

Hello Eric,
We received the 4 sachets, thank you. We had to wait to receive the new batch to send back some sachets. We received them, so it should not be long now.
Thanks for your help, and sorry for this delay.
Best regards
Marie Coppet"

Hopefully this is a sign that they are on the right track.

That's encouraging. I sent them like three weeks ago and I will haven't heard a word from them. I sort of assumed I was just screwed..

Awesome.
I just pitched some of this on a porter I brewed - and I'm into day 2 with no activity, which is why I queried this the board for Nottingham - in all my past 10 batches, that stuff goes off like a rocket when my carboy is at 65 degrees. Takes no more than 10 hrs to start. Never failed. Until now.

I have the blessed lot number. And of course, this is all the yeast I have in the house right now. I'm stoked to know I get to drive to the homebrew shop that only carries coopers and wonder if I just ruined my beer. ahhhh
PISSED!

I sent mine back Sept. 3. On Nov. 13 I received a package from Danstar/Lallemand in the mail. 3 packs returned for 1 sent. So at least thats good. I don't know what I'll do with them.
