Default mutons ale yeast - quick ferment?

Ok, I brewed a PM batch of sweet stout on friday night. Ferment started w/in 6 hours & was mostly done w/in 24 hours. It's still ferementing now, but has slowed way way down. I usually use nottingham or windsor dry yeasts - first time with mutons - is this normal for this yeast? I'll leave it in the primary for at least 3 weeks, but still wondering ...???

Yeah its normal. I used to use only muntons before I went to starters and it starts off nice then just slows to a finish in like 4 days.

I'm amazed - 4 day ferment and only $1.15 a pkg. Depending on taste, now my favorite yeast...

I'm glad this came up. LHBS had a cream ale kit for $20...so I got one. This is the yeast in it, so I was actually a little wary about using it.

When I used munton's I had to rouse the yeast after a while to get it to finish fermenting, its a pretty flocculant yeast strain...

like swirl up the carboy a bit? This batch is acting like it's almost done - although it's only been 4 or 5 days. Yeah, I'm concerned that it's not done. I'll give it a swirl tonight and see what happens. Regardless, I'm planning on not bottling until it's been 2 weeks or maybe 3.
