What are the nitrogen requirements for this yeast?
Nikolai Colton on Jan 31, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I always use the SNA (Staggered Nutrient Addition) schedule. So no yeast nutrients at pitching. Create a mixture of 1 tsp. Fermaid-K & 2 tsp. DAP. Then for a 3-gal batch
Day1: Add3/8 tsp. when making the must
3/8 tsp. 24 hours after fermentation begins
3/8 tsp. 48 hours after fermentation begins
3/8 tsp. when 30% of the sugar has been fermented (~1 week)
Yeast Nutrient - Diammonium Phosphate (DAP)
