I like Nottingham and alot of other dry yeast. I use dry whenever i can. No starters to make and it's reliable. As long as i'm not making something that needs that special yeast strain i use dry. Cheap too. (IMG:style_emoticons/brewboard/biggrin.gif) Braindead

I have used Nottingham for a long time. It's my favrite yeast. I have never rehydrated it and dry pitch it in 10gal batches. It starts in 12 hours or less and finshes in a few days.

Would you recommend pitching 2 packs in a beer 1.070 and higher?

We could nit about exactly when to pitch two packs, 1.070 is a good place to start.

I've used it from time to time when I feel my yeast choice won't affect the taste too too much and have never had problems.

Nottingham is my old stand-by. I can't get liquid yeast at my LHBS. I've done four batches with it, and they've all turned out nicely.

I brewed an extract batch of IPA on Thursday 9/1/05 using this yeast and it was done by Sunday 9/4/05. Fermented done to 1.012. Pretty amazing for an extract batch. Just tasted a sample and it's very good. used all Centennial hops that I grew this summer. to me this yeast tastes identical to 1056. I'll definitely use this yeast again.

I prefer liquid, but I always keep a package of Nottingham around just in case! It's always made great beers.
