Default Boil Yeast Nutrient?

I looked all over, but can't find this. Is it necessary to boil things like yeast nutrient and other addatives? I'll be adding nutrient to stalled lemonade fermentation (ie - already started fermenting, only to 1.071).

Thanks
Aaron

I would boil it in the smallest amount of water you can get it to dissolve, and then add to the fermenter.

I've already added the appropirate amount of yeast nutrient for a batch in the last 15 minutes of the boil. You'll be fine adding it that way.

This is what is says to do on the label of every yeast nutrient that I have ever used.

Thanks for the replies. My yeast nutrient is repackaged by my LHBS so it doesn't have real instructions on the package (just tells how much per gallon to use). As I mentioned, I'm adding this to a stuck fermentation of lemonade, so the last 15 minutes of the boil doesn't apply this time. Though when I make future yeast starters, I'll put it into the wort as I boil it.

Thanks
aaron
