Use this yeast nutrient as your "secret weapon" when your yeast starts to lag or you just want to ensure a vigorous ferment! Supplementing with yeast nutrients reduces lag time and give the yeast a boost during sluggish or stuck fermentations.

Wyeast Yeast Nutrient gives your yeast a great start during propagation and provides the nutrients needed to maintain a healthy, active ferment: a blend of vitamins, minerals, inorganic & organic nitrogen, zinc, phosphates, and other trace elements that will benefit yeast growth and complete fermentation.

To use, simply dissolve in warm water and add the solution to your kettle 10-15 minutes before the end of the boil. Use ½ tsp (2.2 grams) per 5 gallons (19 liters) of wort.

Wyeast Yeast Nutrient will remain stable for 1 year if stored in an airtight container in a cool environment.

Can I use it with yeasts other than Wyeast?
Dmytro Dobrovolskyi on Oct 25, 2021
BEST ANSWER: I don't see why not! I purchased it with the intention of re-using liquid yeasts via a yeast starter. It shouldn't matter where the yeast comes from.
Can I use this for cider or ginger beer? If so what amount should I use?
David j Howard on Aug 28, 2020
BEST ANSWER: It will. I like lively yeast especially for non malt brews. I use a tbsp of this in conjunction with a tsp or fermaid K.

This works well for in-boil nutrient
Though other options exist (DAP being one of them) this one is rather foolproof if you measure it properly. I tended to overlook that not all nutrient works the same and it is worth reading up on.

Won't ferment without it
This is one of the easiest process "upgrades" I have ever utilized. Fermentation begins faster and is more vigorous. I will not make beer or cider without this. Also great in yeast starters when reusing yeast from a previous batch. Just buy it. It's that good.

For yeast starters and wort
I always use when I make yeast starters and during the boil. Can't say for sure if it does what it says it does, but I'm going to trust the science. Can't hurt for the price!

Seems to do a good job.
Easy to use not very expensive and seems to work. I would recommend this to anyone that asked my advice on yeast nutrients.
