Does a great job speeding up fermentation
A definite plus to my process. Increased my actual ABV by 1 above expected. Definitely recommended!
Northern brewer is so reliable! Love the product. I wish it came in a vile or larger amount but the bag reseals and does the job it’s supposed to.
Getting the wort to ferment as quickly as possible seems to make the beer crisper and cleaner. Combining The yeast nutrient and a healthy yeast starter does the trick.
Care has to be taken to deal with the hyper activity during the fermentation process. The fermentation cycle can cause significant overspill, when using a 5 gallon fermenting pail for a 5 gallon brew. I have used a wine fermenting bucket to cut down on the overflow.
The positive results are well worth the addition of the yeast nutrient to the wort.
