+1 to nutrient.  I can get the beer clear, I need the yeast energized and ready to work.

I'd use 4oz less specialty grain and spend that 30 cents on whirlfloc and a half tsp of nutrient. Thankfully my budget isn't quite that tight yet

Thankfully you can add wf and nutrIent at the same time so it isn't a procedural issue. Could be a cost issue  to some but I'd argue one is in the wrong hobby if $3 is a serious matter.

Whirlfloc is maybe $0.25 per batch and nutrient is maybe $0.10. I'm cheap, but I won't fret over $0.35 per batch.

For me it's all or nothing on the whirlfloc vs nutrient question. But that's because I add them at the same time. If I forget one, then I've forgotten both by default. Honestly, they're both just insurance policies. I've never missed either one the times I did skip them.
