    The description says slow starter and slow fermentation. Judging by my experience with the 1.4L starter I made, no kidding. Took 48 hours when my last starter took half that. Anyone have experience with this strain that can share some notes? I'm not going to get my normal 72 hour turnaround in primary like I do with Nottingham, that's for sure.

    No better way to learn than by doing. The starter was pretty slow, and not very energetic, but once that culture was ready, it behaved quite nicely in the fermentor on the full sized batch. Reasonably quick getting to FG and has clarified on its own *really* well. Racking to secondary tonight, will keg and carb next week in time to tap for 4th of July Family Reunion festivities.
