Not just any yeast nutrient. Our beer yeast nutrient is from Connell Bros - world leaders in the industry - to make your best brew.
Yeast Nutrient is a mixture of diammonium phosphate and food-grade urea that nourishes yeast, ensuring that it remains healthy throughout fermentation.
The recommended dosage is 40ppm (5g:25L). It should be slurried in a few liters of liquid and added to the kettle about 15 minutes before the end of the boil.
This is highly recommended when making yeast starters with DME. DME does not contain vital nutrients for yeast health, like zinc. It is beneficial to add yeast nutrient to your yeast starters.
Using yeast nutrients helps:
- Aids in boosting yeast activity during fermentation
- Can reduce off flavours in beer that are caused by bacteriological contamination
- Can help push your final gravity lower by having more active yeast near the final part of fermentation
- Reduce diacetyl content in your finished beer.
