DetailsMuntons brewer’s yeast is a dried brewer’s yeast that produces a powdery flocculation with an apparent attenuation of 70%. Ideal fermentation temperature is between 64° – 70°F to produce an alcohol tolerance of 8% ABV. It provides low ester formation but with relatively high residual sugar giving good body and mouth feel.

4.5 / 5.046 ReviewsGreat for soda!!Used this to brew our first batch of root beer and so far we like the results. Good soda yeast in my opinion.February 24, 2019Purchased
7 months agoExcellent YeastThis is a fast acting robustly fermenting yeast. I may never go back to the fancy English and German yeasts after seeing how this stufff works. It has a rathr neutral flavor in my opinion, it does not seem to affect the taste of the beer very much - as some yeasts are intended to do.January 22, 2019Purchased
1 year agoGreat for apple ciderUsed 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.September 30, 2018Purchased
over 4 years agokit brew with muntons yeastI 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.February 28, 2017Purchased
over 2 years agoI have not used the yeast yet but an quite sure it is a good product and will perform as advertised.December 5, 2016Purchased
over 2 years agoworks great, most of the timeits 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 thoughNovember 25, 2016Purchased
over 2 years agoMunton and Fison Ale Dry YeastI love it. It brews fast, it's done in 4 to 6 days. I've seen firmation start within ten minutes of pitching.August 2, 2016best yeastthis is the best yeast i have seen in many years, i have tried all kinds of other dried and liquid yeast. this works faster,better flavor and cheapJuly 23, 2014Value yeastIt'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.March 20, 2014General purpose YeastI 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.March 17, 2014

Browse 2 questions Browse 2 questions and 6 answerspay 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?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.
