I am firing this recipe up for the first time in a couple hours! Just so happens I have all the ingredients on hand except the Notti. I will go with WLP001 Cali Ale.

I have been craving a lighter beer after all the darker maltier ones I have brewed over the winter.

Just tried my extract version of this beer. Very nice. A little spicey vs. bitter but should settle. Thanks Biermuncher.

BierMuncher you are a genius. 2 weeks in primary and one week in the bottle. I am enjoying my first of many I believe. SWMBO also approves. Thanks!

I'm making 11 gallons this week. My LHBS only had 1 pkg of notty..., what are some other common yeasts that I can use? I will pitch the notty in 1 fermenter and something else in the other.

FERMENTING: Heady Topper Clone?
CONDITIONING: 40 gallons KBS clone in a Jim Beam Barrel (since 11/24/12)
DRINKING: Smoked Robust Porter, Orange Coriander Pale Ale #5
THINKING: first foray into lagers?

Notty has plenty of punch for this 11 gallon batch. I've split notty before and it does fine....fermenting within 8 hours. [Little Experiment]

Just make sure to hydrate it at the beginning of your session and one packet will be plenty.

I've got an extract version of centennial in the fermenter at week no. 2, and was planning to let it sit another 1 or 2 weeks. After reading the last few posts, will it improve much if I let it continue to sit in the fermenter (enough to really be worth it), or should I just bottle it now and start enjoying?

Assuming your ferment is finished, bottle now. It may clear a bit more if you leave it, not sure its worth it. A lot of people in here leave in primary a minimum of 3-4 weeks so the yeast can clean up some off tastes. I dont have the patience for that but it may be a good experiment to see if the end product is any different.
