Brewmaster's Warehouse made a note that they didn't have any yeast nutrient in stock on the packing slip of an order, so I needed a yeast nutrient substitute. I was looking for diammonium phosphate at the drug section of Wal-Mart, but I settled on bee pollen as a substitute for the yeast nutrient. However, I found and bought a vitamin supplement called "Brewer's Yeast" made by Spring Valley.
The bottle list's the following as "Other Ingredients": croscarmellose, cellulose (plant origin), silica, vegatable stearic acid, vegatable magnesium stearate.
So I'm assuming that this is basically dead brewing yeast, and as such I am assuming that this could be a good yeast nutrient/energizer. Does anyone have any idea whether it would help or hurt my brew. I am making a braggot/mead, to be more specific.
Edit: it smells like sweet dogfood and vegatables.
