I'm making vinegar and the alcohol content should end up around 9% ABV. Unfortunately, my yeast has not done it's job and instead of a FG of 1.013 it's stuck at 1.030. Adding some yeast would seem to be a good solution. Rehydrating a packet of Safbrew Abbaye is probably a good choice as it is alcohol tolerant and high flocculation. Nottingham ale yeast is a good choice too for the same reasons. Which of the two would you choose and why?

Nottingham is in my experince a reliable yeast and it'll do a good job. Safebrew Abbaye is according to documentation a little better, but I've no emperical evidence of this as I've simply not used it.

You've made a good choice between Lallemand, Notingham and Safbrew Abbaye and they'll both probably turn out well.

Keep us posted on which one you choose and the results :)

Thanks, I'm going to try Safbrew, Abbaye and I'll post an update as soon as it's fermented :)

Stuck fermentation update

It's been about a week since adding Abbaye yeast and the first signs of C02 are coming through the airlock. I'll take the SG readings in a few days time to see where it lands :)
