Nottingham Yeast dry sprinkled, I wasn’t as nice to my yeast today but its pretty well over pitched so should be OK
The wort was bright and straw coloured and has a good bitterness already 🙂  and my OG was 1047 rather than the planned 1051 which was probably due to me over-estimating the amount of wort the hops would hold, I usually go for 3L for losses to Hops & Trub but I went for 4L today.
Mash and batch Sparge both went well though I think my extra litre didn’t help my efficiency which was down to just over 70%, my liquor was treated to the GW Calc Dry Pale Ale profile so I didn’t do my semi-usual 5g Gypsum in with the grist.

*Bottled 6th Jan ’10 with 55g of DSM
