Nottingham Danstar


Species : Ale
Fermentation Temp Range (°F) : 50-72
Apparent Attenuation Range (%) : High
Flocculation : High
Alcohol Tolerance : Up to 9% ABV

Pitching/Fermentation : Quick start to fermentation, which can be completed in 4 days above 17°C. High attenuation, reaching a final gravity near 1008 (2°P). Fermentation rate, fermentation time and degree of attenuation is dependent on inoculation density, yeast handling, fermentation temperature and the nutritional quality of the wort. Shows flocculation at completion of fermentation, and settling is promoted by cooling and use of fining agents and isinglass. The aroma is slightly estery, almost neutral and does not display malodorous when properly handled. Because of flocculation, it may tend to slightly reduce hop bitter levels. Best when used at traditional ale temperatures after rehydration in the recommended manner. Lager-style beer has been brewed with Nottingham, however low fermentation temperature requires adaptation of the pitching rate to ensure proper attenuation.

Notes : Nottingham is an English style ale yeast selected for its high performance ability and versatility. Traditional styles brewed with this yeast include but are not limited to Pale Ales, Ambers, Porters, Stouts and Barleywines. Furthermore, this highly versatile yeast strain allows for tremendous creativity when brewing beers out of the regular spectrum: in addition to these traditional styles, Nottingham gives the possibility of creating styles such as Golden Ale, Kölsch, Lager-style beers, IPA, and Imperial Stout, among many others.

My go-to yeast
I'm a big fan of this yeast. It consistently finishes at 75% apparent attenuation with a very neutral profile. I've used it in lager-like ale recipes and fermented at 52-55 degrees. I've had it spike up over 75 degrees and the the result was still spot-on. After one brew, I even reused the beer yeast to ferment apple cider. It leaves a neutral flavor profile and good residual apple flavor, unlike other purpose-made cider yeasts.

Great fermentation
First time I've used this yeast. I didn't make a starter, simply re-hydrated per package instructions. Lag was about 12 hrs, but within 24hrs I had 6+ inches of krausen and needed a blow-off tube. Finished strong. Would recommend.

Great yeast
This is one of my go to yeasts, especially for my blonde ale. Ferments reliably, nice flavors, flocculates very well and leaves a dense trub at the bottom after cold crashing. I get a very clear beer even without gelatin.
