Getting very close to brewing my first batch and want to do it right. My question is, how much of Wyeast's Beer Nutrient Blend do I put in my starter? I'm thinking just a typical Ale starter using a single smack pack for a five gallon batch, started in a 2 liter Erlenmeyer flask on a stir plate, with 1.5 liters of DME wort at 1.040 gravity.
The instructions say 1/2 teaspoon 10 minutes before the end of the boil. Also, if I use it in the starter do I also add it in the boil as instructed?
