I brewed a blonde ale on Sunday, and due to some extra boil off I ended up with a higher than expected 1.048 OG.
The airlock was bubbling constantly for about a day and a half and then it quit, so tonight I checked the gravity and it was 1.007!
Thats 86% attenuation!
I didnt expect, nor did I hope that it would be that high.
Is this common?
I have never had a beer ferment out that fast, nor with that high of an attenution, is nottingham always like this?

Nottingham is a voracious little yeastie. Especially if you let the temperature get up around 70F.

When I left Monday morning it was 72, when I got home after work it was 76! And the house was cold, so it was just rocking and rolling in there

Yes it is pretty common. I use Nottingham often at temperatures ranging form 62-68 and 80%+ attenuation is kind of a given.
