I do have to say though, I haven't found Cooper's yeast to be too bad in a pinch. I haven't tried Munton's as I've heard nothing good about it. Not really disagreeing with Yooper here, just noting that not all "cheap" yeasts are necessarily terrible. However, throw Mr. Beer yeast in the garbage immediately lest it inadvertently finds its way into your brew!!!!
