Red Bull for Yeast!! Review by Norvill
I brewed a high gravity beer (1.084) for the first time and I figured a little boost might be needed to decrease the lag time. After using this product, the top of the beer had a nice 5 o'clock shadow after only 4 hours of pitching...at 6 hrs the krausen was few inches tall!! now its blowing out the blowoff tube like crazy.....its a 5 gallon batch in a 6.5 gallon carboy. I think I could have gotten away with using half of what's recommended. (Posted on 12/27/14)
best nutrient i have used Review by jeff
this stuff is amazing. i used it in both my starter and my boil the first time and had explosive fermentation. as in a big mess in my fermentation chamber. now i just use it in my starter and my fermentations are on steroids. you only need a little even for 10 gallon batches. i'll never brew with out it.

Holy Cow Review by Stove
All the other reviews are spot on. Over many years of brewing I've never had a krausen overflow until I used this nutrient blend. (Posted on 11/11/12)
highly recommended Review by J Peter
reduces lag time and increases attenuation if that is what you are after. super vigorous fermentation - had to swap the airlock for a blow-off tube in my most recent batch! (Posted on 10/7/12)
Mandatory Review by D&D Brewers
Fermentation began within a few hours, and the yeast were voracious. Have never seen the Krausen layer so high, so fast...Will never brew another batch without it. (Posted on 6/28/12)
awesome stuff Review by jester
steroids for your yeast. I added this to a barley wine and it pushed the yeast right to it's max alcohol tolerance. also has the attenuation about 15% over what it's rated. wouldn't do a big beer without it. (Posted on 4/12/11)
Works Great Review by Paula
I have used it in two batches so far. I didn't rehydrate it but rather just added it dry to the boil because I forgot to rehydrate it. I will try rehydrating it next time. My beer was fermenting within a few hours, and by 12 hours was vigorously fermenting. I used dry yeast both times. It just seems like good insurance to keep any yeast happy. (Posted on 3/13/11)

You really cant go wrong at this price. I use 1/8 tsp in my starters and 1/2 tsp in my boil (last 10-15 min). I won't make a batch with out it. (Posted on 8/21/10)
