The Nottingham strain was selected for its highly flocculent (precipitating) and relatively full attenuation (transforming sugar into alcohol) properties.
It produces low concentrations of fruity and estery aromas and has been described as neutral for an ale yeast, allowing the full natural flavor of malt to develop. Good tolerance to low fermentation temperatures, 14°C (57°F), allow this strain to brew lager-style beer.
Optimum temp: 57°-70° F. An innovative new vacuum packaging method allows the brewer to ensure that the package is fully sealed prior to use.

Wide range of uses
From blonde to brown, this yeast performs.
My go to yeast!
I love how this settles out in my bottles so that I don't have to worry when pouring that I am going to kick up a hazy yeast cloud in my beer. I ferments fast and often further than my recipes project.
No hydrating required
I made 2 5 gallon batches. I just poured the Nottingham in and let it do its thing on a 1.060 batch of stout. Next to that I put another 5 gallons of 1.100 stout, and poured 2 packs of US05 in it, expecting explosions. I put a blow off tube on the 1.100 and an airlock on the 1.060. I sure am glad I went to check on them the next day, because I needed a blow off tube for the 1.060 Nottingham, it took off like a beast! No explosions, but krausen was coming out of the airlock. The 1.100 was bubbling, but definitely not half as much activity as the 1.060! Very interesting indeed. I broke my hydrometer during cleaning, so Im weary as to whether the US05 is handling the 1.100 or not. But It appears the Nottingham was finished within 4 days, at least most all of the krausen has fallen anyway. This yeast is a powerhouse. The smells coming out of my beer are wonderful, and it tastes great. Im definitely going to experiment more with this yeast. The only other yeast I have found to ferment as fast as Nottingham is WL002.Cheers!
Excellent Ale Yeast
I went back to this after using several liquid ale yeasts and had forgotten how well it clears up and really compacts at the bottom of my bottles. Unlike some yeasts, I don't have to worry about pouring sediment into my glass and clouding a good ale.
been using this for a long time
never failed been using it for years never rehydrated just dumped it in
The go to ale yeast
Notty has a neutral flavor profile which makes it perfect for new recipes try it with your next smash, then use a different hops, you will see what i mean. Highly flocculant with full attenuation resulting in dryer beers. Will ferment well down to 57 degrees
