Default Bakers yeast

Is it ok to use bakers yeast in the boil as a yeast nutrient?

I have never heard of that, therefore I have no idea. That would be pretty awsome if so.

Yes. It's not as good as actual formulated yeast nutrients, but it is an easy option. It's not typically necessary in beer fermentation, however. It's more commonly added to wine or mead recipes as a nutrient. In those cases, it's typically boiled separately in a small amount of water and added to the must.

Yes, yeast are excellent little cannibals.

My LHBS gave me some outdated dry yeast to do this with so I am typically using beer/wine yeast for this but baking yeast should work as well.

I've heard of using that with DAP and zinc as a homebrewed yeast energizer/nute. Could use bulk-bin brewers' yeast as well, but in the quantities we're using, it likely doesn't matter....

Nice, ran out of fermex on my last batch and have lazy and cheap so I haven't replaced it yet. I've got two packages and thought one would help out some. Thanks for the response

That's interesting. I've got some expired Munton's that came with my first kit. I'll give it a try in my next batch instead of my regular yeast nutrient.
