Works very good. No problem
You can use this yeast very easy. I’ve used it 4 times (for 3 and 5 gallons).

Othere like this yeast. I find it very slow to ferment. Likl1y just me but other dry yeasts seem to work just fine.

Keep some on hand
I try to keep some around. A solid yeast, especially good for saving money. For my tastes, it works better in things like porters/stouts than pale ales/IPAs. Cheers!

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?

Solid brew yeast
It is Avery good general purpose yeast that fits into a lot of brews and doesn't break the bank. I have always had very good success using it mostly in I p a's. the warm temperatures here in Louisiana do not seem to bother it at all.

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.

Funky Off-Flavor Ordinary Bitter
I don't know if it was the yeast specifically, but this was my first time trying it, and I'm very dissatisfied with the results. Brewed an Ordinary Bitter, OG 1.037. Used temp control at 68F, was in primary 17 days. Took some time to attenuate down to 1.010. This tastes like my first brews of decades ago. That old funky home brew taste I thought I had long since gotten past. Did not clear well either. I used 1 pack, sprinkled directly into wort. I did not oxygenate, as several learned opinions have posited that dry yeast already has the fatty acids it would ordinarily need the O2 to develop. I'm hoping with some cold storage it may clear, but even if it does, I don't know if the funky taste will clear with it.

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.

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!

I'll brew 5 Gal Pale Ale...should I use two packages or just one?
Monica d 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!
