I was wondering if there is any good dry yeast that can work as an Alternative to the Muntons Ale Dry Yeast. I have had bad luck using this yeast as my two previous brews have stopped fermenting (as appears) and yet the beer hasn't achieved it's FG (even after several weeks). First it happened to me with my Double chocolate stout that stopped when it was 1.027 and I had to rouse the yeast to kind of get it going again. Now, my ESB has been a week in primary and it has stopped releasing CO2 from the airlock and the yeast has almost completely settled to the bottom and yet the gravity is at 1.020 and has to reach 1.015. I roused the yeast and will leave it a week longer to see what happens. So, I was wondering if there is any other good dry yeast that will work pretty good with English Ales such as with the ones I previously mentioned.
