Has anyone used this before or does anyone use it on a regular basis? New item at the brewshop so I couldn't help myself, only $4.25 so pretty cheap too. Should get at least 6 or more brews from it (1tsp per 19L, 42g package).

Will give it a shot, this along with the new aquarium pump should have the yeast in a feeding frenzy!

It may even make a good sized yeast container at the end as well :)

Boil some old yeast in your main boil, gives yeast nutrients just as good for free.

Malt has tons of protein & amino acids and stuff like that for the yeast, nutrients should not be necessary

Excellent idea GMK to look to the health of your starters, I add a smidge of nutrient to mine too. And lots of O2.

Healthy starters give your yeast a head start in the wort.
