Alright, we've seen Nottingham and Safale, I'd say those two along with Muntons Gold are the 'big three' when it comes to dry ale yeasts.
Vote away... I have only used Safale so I have no say.

I've also never used Munton's Gold, but I've heard good things about it.

Wow, that's certainly positive.
Muntons say it gels well (I can only get info from their Premium Gold kits), which I assume is good flocculation, what are the flavour characteristics like?

I musta got a bad packet of it. I pitched it in a 1.050 ale, and it never did start. I stick with Wyeast nowadays.

I had the same thing happen to me, but then I dug the packet back out of the trash and it was outdated by a year! I had regular Muntons sitting around so I pitched that and it took right off (I did only give it a little over 24 hours to start but I would think for dry yeast that is enough)

Working on an "Old Speckled Hen" clone kit. Split five gallons five ways with different yeasts. S-04, S-33, Coopers Windsor and Munton's Gold. The winner, far and away, is Munton's Gold. It was the cleanest and most interesting.

I will admit, however, having a strong predjudice toward MG.

Dan, Yes you have made it known that you really like the Munton's Gold. You are the reason i tried it. (IMG:style_emoticons/brewboard/wink.gif) I would guess that i only had a 1/2 tsp of yeast at the bottom of the carboy after secondary. Maybe not but you get the idea. It was next to none i tell you. (IMG:style_emoticons/brewboard/wow.gif) Clean is an understatement. (IMG:style_emoticons/brewboard/omg.gif) This yeast Just Rocks. Good thing is that i have 4 more packs of it in the fridge. (IMG:style_emoticons/brewboard/biggrin.gif) Thanks for the heads up Dan. (IMG:style_emoticons/brewboard/cheers.gif) Braindead

Really nice yeast. I used it for my first two batches (Bitter and a Porter like dark ale), and they tasted really clean and nice. After just 1 week primary, the beer is already almost crystal clear, and after two weeks secondary, there's almost no yeast in suspension.

The bottles took a bit to carbonate (2-3 weeks or so), but they developed nice, and the yeast was so firmly attached to the bottom of the bottles that it was difficult to pour it in the glass by mistake.

Compared with Wyeast 1338, Muntons Dry Yeast is MUCH more flucculant. And drier. I think it's a great yeast for general purposes ales.

haven't any trouble with it ... used it 3 times ... i like how the yeast sticks to the bottom of the bottle .. just enough so no yeast comes out when you pour .... 3-5 hour lag times
