1 million kilowatts of electricity from AD plant

Within 10 months of operating its £5.3m investment in an anaerobic digestion plant, Muntons, the Stowmarket based maltster, is proud to announce that the plant has just generated its one millionth kilowatt hour of electrical energy.

The plant was officially opened on September 25th by The Baroness Scott of Needham Market who commented at the time “This is a magnificent project” and said she “was not surprised that Muntons had won many awards for sustainability. It was a scheme people in Suffolk could be proud of”. Also at the opening ceremony local MP Jo Churchill commented “This is exactly the sort of investment in Green technology that businesses should be making…. another example of a great Suffolk based company making sustainable and progressive changes to their operation.”

Muntons have installed this plant to produce up to 25% of its electricity demand locally and the plant is performing very well. Manufacturing and Sustainability Director, Dr Nigel Davies explained the significance: “At the outset we were faced with doubt about the likelihood of success of such an ambitious project, but it has proven to be just as good as the extensive pre-construction trials we conducted”.

What is the significance of 1 million kilowatt hours? To put it into a more accessible way, this amount of energy would power around 300 average homes for 1 year or power a 60W incandescent light bulb for 300 years. If you are into fitness and cycle in the gym on an exercise bike at an average rate it would take you around 100 years pedalling to equal the amount of energy generated!

Dr Davies summarised the achievement: “This is a very significant success story wholly supportive of Muntons ethos of ‘Practical Sustainability’. It demonstrates how being bold enough to secure significant funding for innovative environmentally beneficial projects can deliver real savings and, by local generation and use, take the pressure of the electrical supply network in the UK that we are constantly hearing is under pressure.”

Brew Courage Directors at home with Munton’s new kit

Muntons, suppliers of ingredients to the brewing trade since Victorian times and longstanding producers of some of the greatest homebrew kits, have worked closely with Charles Wells, longstanding brewers of the iconic traditional ale Courage Directors to come up with a new kit that means you can produce the beer’s great taste yourself, at home.

“Muntons have done a fantastic job at getting the real taste of Courage Directors, a taste known to discerning drinkers for many years, into a home brew kit,” says Emily Hudson, Brand Manager for English Ales at Charles Wells.

Distinctly superior by name and nature, Courage Directors was originally brewed exclusively for the directors of the Alton brewery until demand decreed this most distinguished of beverages was also made available to the rank and file. “A good job too,” says Emily Hudson. “The ruling class knew just what they were doing when they tried to keep this classic ale to themselves.”

A rich, chestnut hued, full-bodied brew boasting a clean, bitter taste balanced with burnt, orange peel notes and a dry-hop aroma and flavour, Directors is today as rightly popular across the entire country as it is in its native London heartlands.

“This is the perfect time to be launching a new home brew kit with a name that beer lovers know well and trust,” says Joanna Perry, Marketing and Creative Manager at Muntons. “Interest in craft beers has never been higher and more and more people want to experience the taste of great beer at home.”

“If you’re new to home brewing, this new kit means now’s the time to try it,” she says. “It gives you everything you need, making the whole process of producing a perfect pint of Courage Directors utterly simple.”

There’s plenty of support. “We can provide advice for anyone who’s not sure how to go about it,” she says. “The kits will be sold through 250 outlets who are all ready to answer your questions and provide any ancillary equipment or ingredients you might want. If you like, the kit gives you the flexibly to tweak the final result according to your own taste.”

Munton’s asked homebrewers what beer they’d really like to brew in an ideal world. Courage Directors was their top choice. “It’s great to be able to give home brew enthusiasts old and new the beer they really want says Joanna Perry. “And when they tried it, all agreed, the new kit really does give you a great pint of Courage Directors.”

The new Directors kit will only be available through retailers and independents.

Munton’s has also added a Honey Flavour Porter to the range of St Peters range of kits it produces in co-operation with the Suffolk based Brewery St Peters. Munton’s St Peters range already includes St Peters Cream Stout, St Peters Golden Ale, St Peters IPA and St Peters Ruby Red Ale.

“Both new kits give you a chance to brew great beer,” says Joanna Perry. “They add to the fantastic range of kits, for fans of every type of beer, from Muntons.”

Introducing Our Blogger – Andrew Cook

Muntons are proud sponsors of the first IV rugby team at the Stowmarket Rugby Club.  We have been very lucky to have on board our blogging team, Andrew Cook.

Andrew currently is the U15s coach at Stowmarket. What we know about Andrew, in his own words;

“I’ve been coaching since the late 1980s. Unfortunately I had to stop playing at the age of about 25 due to injuries from a motorbike crash – Oh the follies of youth! Previously I’d captained UWIST (Cardiff University) with a side which contained the then captain of Fiji and eight or nine players who played for Wales at junior level. That experience and the knowledge I gained set me in good stead and I coached the senior Stowmarket side for a number of years and now I coach youngsters on a Sunday morning (currently the under 15 age group).”

 It has been great to Andrew’s analysis of the world cup so far and will continue to do so for the rest of the competition. You will also be able to read Andrew’s commentary during the 6 Nations 2016 too.

Rugby World Cup 2015 – End of the Pool Stage.

The pool stage of the world cup ended amidst tears, songs and medical bulletins. The fantastic crowds who have turned up to watch the matches featuring the tournament’s less fancied sides have been treated to some thrilling matches and a genuine rugby party. This was epitomized once more by the glorious Japanese side. The first side in world cup history to be eliminated in spite of winning three of their four pool matches, including toppling the giants of South Africa. They have brought a delight to the event and demonstrated, as you would expect of the Japanese, that team work, mastery of the basic skills, intelligence and efficiency can overcome sheer physical power. A fact which seems to have been lost on the European sides.

Wales were beaten by Australia in a physically charged contest, but were the architects of their own downfall. During a crucial eight minute passage of play, Australia were reduced to thirteen players after they’d had two men sent to the sin bin. Logic dictates that in this situation the team with the superior numbers makes a series of drives at the heart of their opponents’ defence, forcing them to commit ‘all hands’ to stop the charge. Once the defence has been thus ‘sucked in’ you suddenly pass the ball out to the flanks where you should now outnumber the defenders and have a simple task of passing to somebody unmarked who can just stroll in for a try. Not Wales! They seemed to think that as Australia only had thirteen players on the pitch it meant that there were fewer to bash through! For eight minutes they charged headlong at Australian defenders instead of trying to find the gaps where there weren’t any. As a result Australia held out, won the match 15 – 6, topped the group and earned a quarter final against Scotland next Sunday. Wales will face the physical onslaught of the Springboks on Saturday.

Scotland’s game against Samoa was an even clearer indication of this different approach. Once again Scotland rode a veritable four lane motorway of luck to win this game. While the Samoans played fast attacking rugby and scored some great tries, the Scots looked to the bulk and power of their forwards to keep them in the game and ground out their scores through driving lineouts and heaving scrums. In the end a huge slice of good fortune with refereeing decisions saw them win 36 -33 and qualify at Japan’s expense.

Ireland and France contested a brutal encounter to decide the winner of pool D. Ireland won 24 – 9, but it was a pyrrhic victory with captain Paul O’Connell, flankers O’Mahony and O’Brien, and fly half Sexton, all possible casualties for their quarter final against Argentina next Sunday. The Argentinian side looks very accomplished and has clearly benefitted from competing in the annual Rugby Championship against South Africa, Australia and New Zealand. With such important players missing from the team Ireland might well find them a very tough opponent indeed. The French, meanwhile will be served up to the All Blacks next Saturday. On their day we all know that the French can produce brilliant rugby but the Kiwis will start the match as favourites.

Next weekend’s results could well demonstrate how far off the pace the northern nations really are. I wouldn’t be at all surprised to see a last four of Argentina, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. It’s brains, not just brawn, that matters.

Rugby World Cup 2015 Mid Week Maul

Now we come to the business end of the pool matches. The top sides are playing to decide who finishes first or second in their group and thus who their quarter final opponents will be. Below the ‘top tier’ sides, the smaller rugby nations are getting the chance to take home a win from the tournament. Sides like Georgia and Namibia stood no chance against the might of the All Blacks or the Argentinians, but in facing each other they had a chance to be heroes and one day tell their grandchildren all about the game they won at the England world cup. For Georgia there was a little more at stake. Having already beaten Tonga, a win would see them finish third in their group and thus qualify for the next world cup in Japan.

The match was played at a frenetic pace and with tension high Georgia made mistake after mistake. When they needed composure they hurried and fumbled and had two ‘tries’ chalked off in the first half for forward passes. The Namibians kept to a simple game plan, kicking ahead and then rushing up like men possessed to try and tackle their opponents and win the ball back or force errors and win penalties in kicking range. It paid off to an extent. They led 6 -0 at half time but had two players sent to the sin bin in the final minutes of the half after a series of scrum infringements. As the second half got underway Georgia took advantage of their numerical advantage. They scored two tries and kicked a penalty to gain, what seemed to be a commanding 17 – 6 lead. However Namibia had different ideas and with a full complement back on the pitch they cranked up the pace and went hell for leather for a win. Another penalty and a converted try saw the score at 17 -16 for the last few minutes but try as they might the South West Africans couldn’t force the issue and Georgia hung on.

Elsewhere Fiji had a comfortable 47 -15 win over the semi-pro Uruguayans. Uruguay’s two tries were the first they had scored at the world cup since 2003, a cause of great delight for them and their voluble supporters. South Africa ran out easy 64- 0 winners over the USA. The Americans selected a second string side for this fixture. They reasoned that they were going to lose anyway and wanted to save the legs of their better players for their game against the Japanese at the weekend. Time will tell if the ploy works. It’s possible that the blow to morale from a defeat like this might outweigh any physical advantages which might have been gained.

Finally the most disappointed side at this world cup must be Canada. They have played fast, dynamic rugby throughout and delighted the crowds with their approach. They should have beaten Italy but a lack of composure saw chances wasted and the game slipped away from them. Their final group game was against Romania and they took the same approach into the match. They played with a pace and intensity which saw them 15 – 0 ahead early in the second half but then it all started to go wrong again. Players charged off without support and lost the ball. Passes were hurled at each other at 100mph, balls were dropped, good possession kicked away and Romania clawed their way back in. As they closed the gap, the Canadians crumbled, and with 17 unanswered points in the last half hour the Romanians stole what had seemed a most unlikely victory.

So to the weekend. Wales face Australia for the top two spots in group A the winner will face either Scotland or Japan, the loser gets the Springboks in the quarter final. Scotland must beat Samoa to qualify. Ireland and France battle it out to discover whether they will face the All Blacks, or Argentina. Things are starting to warm up!

Rugby World Cup Update 2015 – England Out

With one round of pool matches to go, the shape of the quarter finals is starting to appear through the smoke and lasers of the pre-match build ups! Sadly, for European rugby, the shape is depressingly familiar. On Friday night the All Blacks put in a very disjointed performance and still saw off the challenge of Georgia by 43 – 10. The tournament favourites had a relatively straight forward pool and have been able to rest key players in the easier games meaning that they should be fresh for the knock-out stages. On Saturday Japan continued their upward trajectory with an excellent 26 – 5 victory over Samoa. The Pacific islanders had been tipped as one of the ‘dark horses’ of the tournament but Japan, once again the epitome of teamwork, swept them aside with relative ease. Sadly for the Japanese it seems that, unless the Samoans can raise themselves to beat Scotland next week, the defeat that they suffered at Scottish hands, after a short turnaround of only four days following their stunning defeat of South Africa, will see them eliminated. The Scots were unable to cope with the brutal physicality of the Springboks who ran out comfortable 34 -16 winners at St James’ Park, Newcastle. On paper they should beat the Samoans and continue to the quarter finals but with their pride severely bruised, who knows what mood the Samoans will be in when they walk out for their final game of the tournament. There could still be a sting in the tail.

On Sunday, Argentine overcame Tonga in a highly entertaining, fast-paced match. The final score of 45 – 16 showed how far the Pumas have come from their traditional power based scrum, drive and kick game since joining the Southern hemisphere’s rugby championship and playing the All Blacks, Springboks and wallabies on an annual basis. It’s a regular menagerie down there! In one of the tournament’s duller encounters, Ireland saw off a robust Italian challenge 16 – 9.

The big talking point of the weekend was England’s 33 – 13 humbling at the hands of the Australians. The Australians are usually the rapier to England’s broadsword, all nimble footwork and agile thinking. On this occasion they outmuscled their hosts as well as leading them a merry dance in the brain department, a total annihilation. The Aussies had done their homework and knew exactly where, when, and how to hurt the men in white. England, on the other hand, having had equal time to study and prepare, apparently hadn’t taken any steps whatsoever to counter Australian strengths. In fact they looked like a team who had only met each other for the first time on the way to the ground. Passes were dropped, runs were mis-timed, and the ideas cupboard was bare after the first couple of phases. It seems that the home ‘game plan’ more or less amounted to ‘trying really, really hard at pushing and stuff’. Oh well, there’s always next time.

The fact is that it looks increasingly as though the winner will be one of Australia, New Zealand, or South Africa. Of the remaining European challengers Wales only have half a team left standing, Ireland’s game-plan relies more on their opponents being pressurised into errors so that Jonny Sexton can kick penalties, than on any real ambition on their part to score tries. Seeing as any of the southern hemisphere giants will almost certainly score two, and possibly three, tries against them and knock over a few penalties, that’s an awful lot of errors that the Irish will need them to make in return, in order to stand any hope of winning. The French are capable of beating any of the ‘big three’ in a ‘one off’ game, but unlikely to manage it on consecutive weekends to win a quarter final, semi- final and final. Les Bleus are ridiculously inconsistent, they will give ferocity unbounded one week, and a Gallic shrug the next. So I’m off to find my bush hat, G’Day.
