Diammonium Phosphate (DAP). A source of nitrogen for yeast. Use .5 - .75 grams per gallon (1/2 tsp per 5 gallons) of must to aid yeast and help reduce later problems with hydrogen sulfide. There is a superior nutrient regimen (using Go-Ferm and Fermaid K) for wine making:

A rough approximate of weight is 1 tsp = 3.1 grams. We highly recommend using a scale to weigh the product for an accurate dose. We do not recommend relying on these rough conversions for accurate dosage rates.

Gotta Have It
Almost without exception I do a starter to get my yeast counts up. I don't do it without Yeast nutrient, A pinch of DAP in a 1 liter makes for happy healthy yeast

nutrient and maillard catalyst
Not only do I use it for yeast starters and stepped nutrition in meads, but DAP can be used to make Belgian candy syrup

I have to agree with Jason R on this one. I haven't really seen any advantage to using this.

Your yeast will know the difference!
Addition of DAP will give your yeast the boost they need to sustain fermentation in harsh conditions. Normal fermentations don't really need it though - save it for the high gravity and low nutrient fermentations. I stagger DAP nutrient additions for all my meads (as well as Fermaid K)..

OK, but needed?
I've used this but honestly haven't seen a difference. The liquid yeasts are very healthy these days, and with a good mash and water profile I haven't had problems.
