Nottingham offers great performance with every batch, allowing brewers to cover a wide variety of beer styles with just one yeast type. The Nottingham strain was selected for its highly flocculant & relatively full attenuation properties. It produces low concentrations of fruity and estery aromas and has been described as neutral for ale yeast, allowing the full natural flavor of malt & hops to develop.
Flocculation: Medium to High-
Optimum Ferm Temp: 14° to 21°C - 57° to 70°F
Alcohol Tolerance: High
Tip: This yeast can be used with lager-style beer. For low fermentation temperature homebrewers will need to adapt (increase) pitching rate to ensure proper attenuation.
Rehydration Instructions: Sprinkle the yeast on the surface of 10 times its weight of sterile water at 30°C to 35°C (86-95°F). Do not use wort, distilled or reverse osmosis water as loss in viability might result. Gently break any clumps to ensure that all yeast is in contact with the rehydration medium. DO NOT STIR. Leave to rest for 15 minutes then suspend (stir) the yeast completely and leave it for 5 more minutes. Then adjust temperature to that of the wort and inoculate without delay. With changes of temperature of more than 10°C adjust the temperature in 5 minute intervals of 10°C to avoid the formation of petite mutants or incomplete fermentation.
Storage: All active dry yeast should be stored dry and below 8°C.
