I always feed my yeasty beasties...
I have not tried other supplements, but I rather like Carlson Yeast Nutrient. It was loads cheaper to get the large bag and simply refill my bottle. I keep the reserve amount in my fridge. Toss in a tsp per gallon of homebrew, 15 minutes before the end of the boil and don't forget to aerate - I usually see activity in 12-18 hours.

Seems to work great
This seems to work nicely. I am adding it to my mead, and the yeast is still bubbling away nicely after 2 weeks. Not sure how it works, but my mead is looking very nice to this point.

Better product
My apple pie wine came out wonderful with this and the Lalvin K1V-1116 yeast. Very little flavor loss and great fermentation. I would use these products again.

Yeast nutrient
Ordered small bottle of nutrient, only info I would recommened is do your home work and make sure you know how much nutrient is needed, the amount I needed for 1 gallon to make hard apple cider was 1 teaspoon, what I ordered was a 2 oz bottle and now Im left with an almost full bottle of nutrient that I will not use. I would ask midwest to put the recommened amount that each prodcut is used for next to each product on the site Otherwise great product and fast shipping !!!

Does this yeast nutrient contain zinc?

Not add nutrient?
A shopper on Jan 18, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I have never done a control experiment where I make identical batches of wine with and without yeast nutrient. Someone with more experience could comment on this; I make three batches of wine a year, and I have only been making wine since 2011. However, I have always used it and I've never had a stuck fermentation when I used it, and it makes biochemical sense to use it. Yeast nutrient is urea, NH2CONH2. It is used as a nitrogen source for yeast (see the two nitrogen atoms in urea), which all living organisms need. Of course, there are many nutrients in grape must too, but apparently adding urea does help. (As a side note, urea is the primary solute in pee, which sounds gross. But it isn't; the color and smell of pee comes from other substances, not urea, which is colorless and odorless. Your body makes urea to get rid of nitrogenous substances that your body doesn't need anymore.)
How many gallons will 1lb treat?
A shopper on Nov 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Generally use 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon per gallon, and there are just under 100 teaspoon per pound. Well over 150 gallons, a pound of nutrient is a lot, lasts me many years
can you add this halfway through fermentation? or can it only be added at the beginning?
A shopper on Apr 30, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, you can add it after you have pitched the yeast. Just take extra care, as it should always be, to sanitize everything you plan to use. There is some concern when doing this because you are exposing it to oxygen which is not good for beer, but is also needed for the yeast to thrive and do its business. If you have seen little to no action in your bubbler and when you open it and don't see some yeast residue around the edges of your primary, then you can add the nutrient to try kicking things off a bit.
