Description

Add servomyces to your beer to increase yeast health because healthy yeast make better tasting beer. Other benefits include a decrease in fermentation time and increased alcohol potential. Servomyces stimulates the uptake of maltose which results in drier beer with higher alcohol yields. It is made by saturating beer yeast with zinc and then drying it. Zinc is a missing nutrient in wort and is more readily absorbed from dead yeast cells than by adding it directly as a mineral. Originally available only to professional brewers, this wonderful yeast nutrient is now to the homebrewing community, thanks to White Labs and Lallemand. Since it's introduction, we have been after White Labs to make a smaller, more easy-to-use version of the product. It wasn't until our very own Shea Comfort came up with the capsule idea that they were able to move forward and deliver this "super food" to us! Olin Schultz of MoreBeer did an intial side-by-side trial batch using "Servo" and found the beer with servo started faster, fermented quicker, and finished 1 gravity point less than the control batch. While it is not a cure-all pill for your brew, it offers the serious home brewer an easy, effective way to help ensure yeast health. Servomyces was developed in Germany at the Weihenstephan brewing school and the Munich University, so of course it conforms to the German Purity Law! Contains 6 capsules good for 5 gallons of wort each. Add Servo in the last 10 minutes of the boil. If your ferment does not require a boil ( as in a mead), open the capsule and add the Servomyces directly.

Glad I tried this!
I've used a different nutrient in the past, with decent results, but the capsule form of the servomyces was convenient, and the results boosted my 9% winter ale through fermentation very well. It even finished the FG a few fractions lower than expected.

Excellent addition
Have not used yeast nutrients before so cannot speak to cost efficiency between this and said yeast nutrients. Since using these, however, fermentation is quick, heavy, and long. Had to start using bigger carboys because it was fermenting so strongly and coming up the airlock, which had never happened before.

Wouldn't consider brewing without, and ~$2.00 a batch seems reasonable.

Servo never fails.
I have used Servomyces in probably 30 batches, and each and every time it has yielded great results. I have never had a batch under-attenuate, and fermentation seems to be a lot smoother. The only reason it doesn't get 5 stars is because of the price.

Very Active Ferment
This product made a noticeable difference in the vigor of my fermentation. Highly recommended.

Take care of your yeast!
Great yeast nutrient. I drop the capsule in with 10 minutes left in the boil.

Decent product, a bit pricey.
I like having some in hand to restart stuck fermentation with a little more yeast slurry but...other than that, a jar of nutrients has no discernible difference.

Just needs a slight modification.
Following the directions to the T, the capsule does not dissolve. To solve this, simply take it apart and sprinkle it in the wort. I've had no problems with my subsequent batches of beer as a result. Cheers everyone.

every time
even if I use a yeast starter I still use these, they work great and I never worry about fermentation.
