I got this in a stout kit but modified the recipe quite a bit. The label reads:

"Muntons Active Brewing Yeast"
"6 grams"
"A Product of the EU"

That's all it said on the label. Just curious if anyone knows exactly what kind this is.

It's working great by the way...VERY active fermentation, just had to swap out the fermentation lock for a blow-off tube after the first 12 hours.

Thanks for any help!

IIRC, How To Brew has the best profile of that yeast than anyone.

Muntons doesn't even have much to say about it.


Other than if you are all malt it will struggle and to use their Gold Line yeast.
