Makes good Mead
I use this and the energizer for Mead to add the missing nutrients. It works great because I hit final gravity in a week, and then rack and age. I don't have to re-rack multiple times.

I like it.
This stuff is good. I use it when I throw in additional DME, brown sugar, or honey to my wort. In my mind it should keep the yeast going when exposed to higher original gravity readings. I've been able to get three batches out of each small bottle. For the price, I think its worth it just for the piece of mind knowing that your yeast will not throw in the towel early.

Good stuff
At first I just used this in specific recipes that would actually call for the nutrient, like some hard ciders, and stouts. I have been using this more and more as of recent, seem to notice fermentation much quicker with use more times than not.

Helped keep my fermentation healthy and strong. I didn't ever fear that my yeast would fail. Thanks!

Saved my brew
Brewed up a batch of ale and after 3 days there was no yeast activity. Opened the primary and added some of this. Before long the yeast had taken off and was going strong. The end product was great and I didn't notice any off flavors from using this.

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 !!!

Emergency measures
I had a stuck fermentation where after 3 days the gravity stopped dropping. I added some of this and within a weak it was down to where it needed to be.

1 grams per gallon of beer
I measure out 1gm/gal and add it when I pitch the yeast. It seems to help because I have been having full attenuations since doing it.

Makes better Cider and Mead
Using this helps fermentation complete weeks or months faster because the yeast get all the needed nutrients. It's easy to use and gives noticeable results.

Great for yeast starters
Add a teaspoon during the boil for a 1 liter yeast starter just as the instructions say. Works great.

What does this do to the taste of beer or wine?
R W on May 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: If used properly, this should not change the flavor of beer or wine. The only noticeable "Flavor" difference, would be the dryness of the beverage due to the yeasts ability to further metabolize sugars due to being properly fed. I hope that this helps!
