White Labs Yeast Nutrient is used to increase the health of yeast, this improves fermentation and re-pitching performance. It contains diammonium phosphate (DAP), essential vitamins and co-factors, nitrogen, amino acids, proteins, peptides, and minerals. An effective boost for first and/or late-generation yeast slurry. If the grist is not 100% malt, then White Labs Yeast Nutrient can help make up for the lack of nutrients.

DAP is used often in mead and wine making. Honey and grape must are deficient in FAN, Free Amino Nitrogen. Fermaid-K or Fermaid O are used for the other required nutrients.

Informative thread and input.
Was almost out of yeast nutrient anyway, ordered servomyces.
Debate settled in my mind, moving on.
