    Well some is included in the yeast nutrient I use.
    DAP is a bit like using super phosphate, the better yeast nutrients are more like putting good compost on your garden.
    Considering the small difference in cost I would go with something like Wyeast Nutrient (lots of others on the market to) these supply in addition to the Nitrogen available in DAP, trace elements, proteins, some sterols (good ones)…
    The only exception being in something like a Cider which can be very low in FAN (free amino nitrogen - beer wort should have a lot more) where in addition to a complex yeast nutrient, a bit of extra N might be an advantage. But I think I would just use more of the better stuff.
