I ask my supplier to give me a better price since I'm buying so much. Any good HBS will oblige...

Isn't a pack of Notty like 79 cents? Why is a discount so important?

More like $1.25 per pack and when is getting something for less money ever unimportant?

Why pay $5 for a gallon of gas when you can get it for 4?

IMHO US05, S33 & S04 > Nottingham & Windsor

Tried the US05 once and I was not happy with it's poor flocculation. I probably could have gotten clearer beer with a secondary but didn't want to take the time.
Now I'll be using Nottingham as a backup or when I'm feeling lazy.

I use S-04 if I want more character from the yeast, but Nottingham if I want a better attenuation.

Nottingham is my goto yeast. For the last few months I haven't even had liquid yeast in stock. The only reason I do now is that I'm getting into some lagers and hefe's for the summer. I had high hopes for Windsor to compliment Nottingham but I've had problems with it getting stuck very high during fermentation (unreasonably high, 1.030 on a 1.045 batch for example).

Safale US-05. Almost EVERY batch. It'll do anything you want it to, from a 3.5% session beer to a 11% stout. It's polite, it cleans up after itself, and it's cheaper than bejeezus. Plus, it washes will for multiple batches.

But I keep a spare pack of S-04, a spare Notty, and a spare Pasteur Champagne in the fridge.
