Good question. You must be one Fart Smeller, I mean Smart Feller.

I have no idea, as my fermenters are in a freezer in the garage.

One man's farts are another man's ambrosia though.

Please tell me this is a common occurence during the fermentation of this brew and that it will give way to beautiful malty aromas. Thanks!
Yes - They smell. As the yeast make beer they fart too ya know.

It/They will also taste like farts (I think, never tasted one or want too) if you try to drink them too soon. Like right now.

Wait until it done, rack to the 2ndary or bottle and wait about 3 weeks and you have some tasty beer to drink. - No Farts Honestly!

You ought to call this one Fartopia Pale Ale!!!

Ed, I noticed that you call for no hydration or yeast starter with the Nottingham. I am assuming that you have had luck with this, but I have to be honest that I have never heard of this before. I thought that you always had to make a starter with dry yeast. I am still somewhat of a noobie, but it just seemed odd. I'm going to try this recipe this weekend, thanks for the economically friendly beer.

Having a starter always helps, but you can either dry pitch, or rehydrate as noted on the package or have two on hand all of the time. That way if you have a dead one you're OK. You just add another pack. This is my back up yeast. Its a good neutral yeast to have at the ready.

You don't need a starter for Nottingham or Safale-05. Nottingham recommends you rehydrate, but Safale does not. I've done it both and it does not matter either way IMHO.

I decided to give "all grain" a try. After all the posts about Ed's "Haus" Ale I figured that would "bee" a good one to start out with. I knew I would need to split the boil into two pots. I didn't think I would need three.

I suppose the three pots have quite a bit more surface area than one large pot. I'm thinking that's why after "boil off" I only ended up with about 3 1/2 Gallons. So, after I cooled the wort, I added enough tap water to the fermenter to bring it up to 5 1/2 gallons. Was that OK???

I don't know how to figure out my "efficiency" yet. But, after I put my sample into the freezer to cool it to about 60 deg, my hydrometer reading was 1.048. A little short I think. I'm not sure what I did wrong there. It could be I added too much water.

Also, my LHBS was sold out of the Nottingham yeast. I used Muntons. Do you think that will make much difference?

For my first try at all grain brewing everything seemed to go pretty well.

(Except for the flood and the mild heat stroke...)

But, I came out looking (and tasting ) pretty good. It does seem a little "lighter" than yours. I'm not sure why.





I can't wait til it's done.

Thanks for sharing the recipe Ed.

How do you brew at someone elses house and then get it to your own house without ruining it?

Put your bucket or carboy fermenter in the back of your car and take it home. Add the yeast when you get home. The jostling will help aerate it.
