Great for apple cider
Used 5.25 gals apple juice and 4 lbs of honey (makes 6 gals). Leave in primary one month at around 78F (yes it's hot here in FL). Bottle with or without cask aging yeast. Bottle condition a month or more.

Comes out dry, but not over the top like champagne yeast. Nice apple flavor and a hint of sweetness.

I've used this in ales as well and they always come out fine.

kit brew with muntons yeast
I did not get a very robust fermentation, started slowly and ended soon. Also used 1/2 cup dry malt and 1/2 cup corn sugar for the prime and the bottles are very low carbonation. Not sure if that is yeast related or not.

works great, most of the time
its cheap but not exactly consistent. Will use in the same recipe over and over and some time end with a FG of 1.005. Next time might be 1.012 or anywhere in between. Have had a couple packs fail to ferment at all. Still buying it though

Munton and Fison Ale Dry Yeast
I love it. It brews fast, it's done in 4 to 6 days. I've seen firmation start within ten minutes of pitching.

Value yeast
It's reliable and I use it as a back up. If my yest doesn't finish the job I rehydrate some of this to help get a few more points of attenuation. It's also good as a bottling yeast for beers that I've aged and the original yeast is spent.

General purpose Yeast
I have used this Yeast for a few years now on ALL my Beers. This last winter which was pretty rough it kept on working even though the temperature in my shed varied greatly.

Great yeast at a great price!
This yeast has always done very well for me. As the item's description indicates, this yeast performs very well between 64 and 70 degrees. If you pitch the yeast above 70 degrees you definitely lose viability and suffer weak fermentation/carbonation in your brew. I have also always pitched this yeast straight to the fermenter without rehydrating and have never had any problems at all. This is a great performing yeast and the price is even better. GREAT PRODUCT.

Ol' Reliable
It works just as well if not better than more expensive yeast. It can handle making 9% ales. I do rehydrate in sterilized water before pitching.

What is the temperature range of this yeast? This is the second batch I have tried that the yeast did not take. This last batch I was careful to gently swirl it in at exactly 65 degrees, and the fermenter is at 64 degrees. No activity in 60 hours. When I used to brew 20 years ago Munton & Fison was my yeast of choice and never had a failure.

BEST ANSWER: I have had good success starting all yeasts in orange juice. I think a higher temperature, say in the 80s might benefit you better. You might take the precaution then of matching thiz active starter to the temperature of your batch.
pay no attention to my previous question- it is clearly stated in the product description. Now I have to figure out why my yeast isn't going. Basic recipe, 3.3lbs light malt syrup, 2 lbs dme, 1 lb crystal
malt?
