Extremely Reliable
Never had any problems with this affordable ale yeast. I'm not picky about yeasts though. This is pretty much all I ever use. I can't afford the high dollar liquid stuff anyways.... why change what works so well?

first time using this yeast brewed a batch of ale. got it done at 8:30 pm 5 1/2 hrs later nothing, went to bed saying i'll deal with it in the morning, thought bad yeast 8:30 am went down to the basement and had 2in. of foam on top and the air lock was going nuts. 24 hours now and still going nuts very active yeast is all i can say

it works
i haven't really made enough brew to really test all the different yeast yet. I've used this once before on an IPA and it came out well. what i do know is that NB has good prices and gets the products to me in a timely fashion. thanks!

Muntons ale yeast
I have always had good luck with this yeast. A good ballanced beer is always the result.I use it on a cream ale recipe I got off the internet.

good product
I have used this yeast several times.starts very fast,throws a large head to protect the brew,clean taste.similar to the old Edme brand.I found it to be the best ale yeast so far.

very short lag
brewed a few batches with this yeast, almost every time I get a nice and short lag time. pitch a little warm (80¡ or so) and by the time you've reached your fermentation temperature you'll probably notice a few bubbles already. great dry yeast to have on hand in case of emergencies too!!

better than the rest
i have used just about every yeast the NB sells and others but this is the one i always go back to. when i have an order going out and have lost the batch this has saved me more than once

Great all around yeast.
I purchase my products from NB with 2 guys I work with. They have been at this a lot longer than I have (1&1/2years for me ) Mutons is all they use for everything they brew. We have never had a problem or off taste. Over 100 batches between us.

consistently good
I've never had a non-starter with this yeast. Proof it first in wort cooled to 80 - 100 deg F and it will start amazingly fast and works well at about 70 deg F. No off flavors. Great in pale ale.

Wrong Temperature >>
Someone should take down the "Wrong Temperature" review by "Joe" so that someone is not misled; the package says 38¡-40¡ C to ACTIVATE the dry yeast! You don't ferment at that temperature!This is a fine and reliable basic ale yeast. Be sure to aerate the cooled wort (stir agressively with spoon to get air bubbles from the surface into the wort) , activate as described on the package, and pour it in. No drama.

I'll brew 5 Gal Pale Ale...should I use two packages or just one?
Brenda C on Feb 27, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Two. However, I have found that Munton's Ale Yeast suffers from premature floculation, which means that the yeast cells tend to grow old and die before they run out of fermentable sugars. This means that not only will you have high final gravity and low alcohol content, but there are not enough viable yeast cells left for conditioning in the bottle, leaving you with a flat beer. I have switched to Safale S-04 for my ales.
How much alcohol will Muntons dry ale yeast handle?
Robert L on Feb 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It can handle up to 10% before there are any problems.
If brewing a stout with a target OG of 1.077, how many packets would you recommend?
J M on Dec 23, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Definitely 2. you're looking to reach a pitch rate of about 15 million cells for a beer with a starting gravity that high. I will double pitch anything over 1.08 and your beer is up there. Additionally, I cannot speak to the flavors or efficiency of this particular dry yeast - Muntons Ale - since I used it to "enliven" a beer I had left a long time in the fermenter before bottling, just to make sure the beer would condition in the bottle. I most often use liquid yeast in my beers and if you are going to use Munton's Ale dry yeast for this beer, be sure and re-hydrate. In place of a double pitch you could make a yeast starter and get her going with a 15 million cell count target, a starter wont hurt. Good luck!
I have a packet of yeast that came with my Coopers Irish Stout. Is it ok to mix this yeast with that one ?
C U on Oct 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It has been over 15 yrs since I have had such a dilemma. Try the enclosed yeast packet first. If no activity apparent after 24 hours, sprinkle in the Muntons. After 16 years and over 600 brews, I have settled upon it as my go to yeast!
