    I’ve just bought this kit to try and notice the supplied yeast is only a 6 g sachet. Has anyone encountered any issues with this?

    It might be fine but there's a risk of a stalled fermentation. If it was me (and a few years back it was) I'd buy a pack of Nottingham or S-04 and use that instead.

    I have an 11g pack of Wilko Gervin ale yeast. Would you use that instead?

    I'm fairly sure Wilko Gervin and Danstar Nottingham are the same yeast. So yes, you've got a good pack there!

    That's a good yeast. Yes I'd use that instead of the 6g kit yeast, you might be OK with the kit yeast but you might not, my last stalled kit went down the drain so better to be safe than sorry.

    Thanks. I'll use the Wilko one.
