I am using Nottingham for the first time.
I am used to th us-05 which makes a good lott of bubbles in the yeast lock.
This one though went wery slovly for two days and then more or less compleetly stopped.....
Pitched drye at 30C
Started of in about 14 hours
Fermenting at 19C

Any ideas...?

In my experience Nottingham ferments at about the same rate as US-05 if pitched into the same beer at the same temp. I have found that Notty really benefits from rehydrating before pitching as it tends to clump together so you don't get a good strong inoculation which can slow down the action. Once it gets going though it is usually done bubbling withing 2-3 days at 65-68F.

Keep in mind that if you are fermenting in a bucket fermenter you may be leaking CO2 out from under the bucket lid as most lids don't seal air tight.

It's possible. Nottingham even says on their product sheet that it can finish in 72 hours if the conditions are right.

Now just let it go another 2 weeks to clean up the off flavors and then bottle!

Nottingham is a beast!

I just checked my American wheat beer last night that is on Nottingham and it started at 1.052 and it's all the way down to 1.007 after 3 weeks!
