Re: Four year old Munton's

6g in 2 galons of beer should be plenty, even if it is 4 years out of date. Did you hydrate the yeast first? No, I almost never do. According to Brewer's Friend yeast pitch calculator 5 grams would be right and figuring 4% loss of vitality for dry yeast per year the 6 grams I pitched was just right...

Four year old Munton's

I brewed a two gallon batch of bitter yesterday with an O G of 1.034. I pitched a six gram pack of Munton's with a date of 11/16 at 3pm. There was a 1/8 inch layer of foam at 9pm and the airlock was burping every two seconds this morning at 8am.

Re: Low(er) Alcohol Tasty Recipe?

Mash at a higher temperature, use a good percentage of specialty grains, and pitch a low attenuating yeast.

Re: Great western brumalt

The description of brumalt by Great Western includes tart which I didn't get in the pale mild. I am getting a bit of tartness in the darker version in which I used 33% more.

It's definitely a marmite yeast. I like it in stouts, not in pales though.
Consensus of the best dried yeast ( I know many will say we need wet yeast, but not there yet) for these bitters would be really helpful.
I had good success with London ESB in a bitter: 1.040-1.012 and tasted good.

Re: Zymurgy article

It's about the variety of extracts that are available and the various styles of beer that can be brewed with just extracts.
