I'm interested in making Brandon O's Graff, which calls for Nottingham yeast or Safale-05. I have no idea what either of these are. I did some Googling and found that Danstar is the maker of the Nottingham, but my local shops don't carry that brand. Can anyone suggest an equivalent White Labs or Wyeast strain?

Wyeast 1056 is safale05. WL 001 should give the same effect

There have been lots of reported problems with people using Notty lately. I've switched to us-05 and have been getting very good results.
Primary 1: 4 Hop IPA

Primary 2: Apfelwein

Primary 3: Air

Bottled: Hammered Squirrel Nut Brown Ale (btl. 5/9/10), Jamil's Evil Twin (btl. 3/29/10), Crazy Ivan RIS (btl. 2/14/10), English Pale Ale (btl. 12/29/09), Apfelwein

As long as the temp stays around 70F or lower, Notty and US-05 should give you about the same results. I notice little, if any, difference with the same recipes.
