Yeast Nutrient

Postby BillyBock » Sat Apr 02, 2005 11:17 am

Are there any drawbacks to having a little extra yeast nutrient in the wort? I accidentally used a Tbsp instead of a Tsp when measuring (doh! I was distracted :oops: ) By my calculations, I'm only over by 2 or 3 tsp. of the suggested amount, the range is 1/2 tsp to 1 tsp per gal. Wort size was 13 gals.

Not to worry

You're probably going to be totally fine. What is your yeast doing?

I use a Minibrew so I really can't see what's going on. But judging by the krausen ring shadow they went to town. Also I did not notice any off-aromas venting out of the conical.

Sounds good!

Sounds like you're going to have some super-healthy yeast there. Any drawbacks? Well, I guess you probably "wasted" a wee bit of money, but that's about it.
