Hello all, first post here…
I wanted to share my profile I am trying out. This is being used with DanStar Nottingham Ale Yeast. (http://www.danstaryeast.com/company/products/nottingham-ale-beer-yeast). The ale I am brewing is a English Brown Ale.
From the lab’s page, the yeast’s optimum range is between 14-21C. I have to admit to being cautious about going down to 14C for fermentation though. I thought I would start at the warmer end for the first couple of days to ensure fermentation started, then ramp down for a few days before going back up to the high end of the range for a diacetyl rest before a cold crash at the end.
