Muntons 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.

Used this to brew our first batch of root beer and so far we like the results. Good soda yeast in my opinion.
This 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.
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.
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.
I have not used the yeast yet but an quite sure it is a good product and will perform as advertised.
