Yeast Hulls (the brown powder)

(1/1)

pyrite:
My local hombrew shop manager told me he uses yeast hulls on his big beers.  I have never heard of yeast hulls, but ended up buying a little pack full of the brown colored powder to help when I ferment big beers. Have any of you had experience with this stuff? If so how can I use it and when should I use it?

dbeechum:
Yeast hulls are a primary ingredient in most yeast nutrients (along with other fun things like zinc, DAP, uric acid, etc)

When I'm brewing, I almost always add a dose of nutrient to the beer, even though I'm doing all-grain and mostly all-malt beers (ok, my Belgians tend to have a ton of sugar in them, but hey)
