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.

Just thought I would try it. The yeast packets are too small (10-15L) for 5 gallon batches, so need 2 packets.

gotta have it
I have used this twice and I will never brew without it. You get a kick ass fermentation and starts in about 12 hours or less.

I have been using servomyces since I started brewing and I always have better results with a robust, more complete, and longer fermentation than when I run out and forget to reorder for my next brew. If you have sluggish fermentation, I recommend you give servomyces a shot.

Works Quite Well
I've been using this stuff for years. For me, it works better than yeast nutrient. Using the Servomyces coupled with a healthy dose of pure O2 has really cranked up my fermentations. Not cheap but not having a healthy fermentation is more costly in the end.

Honestly cant tell if it helped, but it sure didnt hurt during an intentional underpitch. Used it twice and excellent results each time

Successful fermentation!
Love the ease of use of this product and it's apparent effectiveness... as the fermentation of my latest batch of porter will attest... I always worry about getting a complete fermentation even though I always make a starter and generally add a pack of dry just to be sure... I hit the final gravity on the button and I'd like to think the health of my yeasties is a big reason why!

I dont brew without it!
Ever since discovering Servomyces and its benefits, I have been brewing with it since. Roughly 20 + batches now as of 2018 and I couldn't be happier. Really helps clear beer up and keeps the yeast healthy for re-use. Give it a go and see for yourself
