Same here on the Notty. Basically it was screamin for 24 hours (94 bubbles per min) and now is slow (12 bubbles per min) The brew is only 48 hours old. Is this common for Notty? I rehydrated the yeast as always.

Yes...I had a krausen rise & drop within 48 hours on EdWort's Haus Pale Ale with Notty...definately odd but I was assured it was par for the course. It goes like gangbusters than peters out rather quickly.

I made the extract version and found it plain/a bit low hopped on testing it 6 weeks after bottling - and then when I dumped the whole bottle into the beer glass, including the bit of yeast on the bottom of the bottle, it is very tasty. The bottom yeast balances it out.

Very good.

I have one batch in keg carbing, and another in bottles. This stuff is crystal clear. I can't wait to try it!

I'm just about done with a keg of this. I originally brewed it so I would have something on tap for relatives who drink light beer. They didn't get to try it yet because I found that I like it quite a bit. It's a great beer for boating or while working around the yard. I really didn't expect to like it and didn't plan to drink it myself. I'm doing this one for my first 10 gallon batch sometime this week. I think it will go over well at a 4th of July party we are having.

I also goofed on the recipe and accidentily doubled the first hop addition, it turned out so good I'm planning to make the same "mistake" again.

Made this recipe and loved it. Took it to a get-together and it didn't score well. One guy seemed to like it, and wanted me to make him a batch. The girls were hesitant to try it (they aren't into anything but light beer, and assume anything I make is not going to be good as the big boys, or is going to be hoppy (guilty usually). But the keg was going flat and not as cold as I would have liked. Even I didn't think it was "great".

Got it back home and got the gas back on it and back in the kegerator and last night tasted again, and it's back to be real good again! It's def. a cold and fizzy style!

Might try a Koelsch next time to compare.

I can't wait to try it. I will go from Primary to keg at the end of 3 weeks. Carb for a week and it will be ready for the 4th. God I hope it is as good as everyone says. I really want SWMBO to like it.

It is the biggest PM that I have done yet. 6.75 lbs of grain.

Brewed this recipe yesterday. I got an OG of 1.044 after diluting the 87% efficient wort to 12 gallons. I had 0.3 oz of Simcoe I added to get my IBUs right. Hopefully that won't screw anything up too badly. I suppose the simcoe may add a piney character that will be undesirable but I thought the citrusy components might be highlighted more with the centennial and cascade hops. They were also a bit old and may have lost some of their aromatic qualities.

Its a nice recipe and was the first time I got to use my keggle. Cheers.
