Wyeast Vintner Choice Nutrient Blend 1.5 oz
A nutrient blend from Wyeast, designed especially for use with wine yeast.
The nutrient worked as expected. Used it in my first mead and seemed to help my yeast get off to a good start. Will use it everytime.
I initially brewed my meads with no nutrient and the yeast activity was sufficient for my needs and taste. Then one day I had to meet an order minimum and so I ordered a vial of this stuff. On my next batch I went ahead and gave it a try. My yeast absolutely erupted! Within two or three feet of the fermenter, I could actually hear the constant hiss of the yeast activity and the finished product, using the same recipe, had climbed two whole points in ABV. I now consider this stuff to be an absolute necessity when making mead. I don't use it in beer wort because it naturally has sufficient nutrients for the yeast but if you make mead or wine, I highly recommend it.
