I know this place has really slowed down but im sure there are still a few lurkers. I have read a few things and dug up old searches about it but the posts are old and things change/have changed. Anyway has anyone used Muntons Gold Ale yeast have some good things to say about it? Im looking for something other than my usual S-04 for some English ales and I am a dry yeast user. I know that limits my choices but I only use Liquid for particular beers.

I've used this yeast but I prefer Nottingham or even Us-05 or Us-04. The Munton's Gold will work but as I recall it did not flocculate well and took a bit of time to clear. Use it if it is all you have----the price is right at least.

I have access to other yeasts. I was asking because I have actually read a lot of good about it. Even that its close to the Fullers strain Wlp002/Wyeast1968 and that it flocs well. Just wanted to see what otbers had thought of it.

Thanks for the reply.

For sure did not floc well. Maybe if you cold crash it, but I never do. Give it a try---I'm sure it will come out tasty!

I used it on an English Bitter. For the record I found it to flocculate well and seems pretty clean at the temps I used it at. Almost too clean, I was hoping for some more English character. I would have to use it again before really having an opinion on it.
