Okay, I don't know anything about chicken feed, but hoping someone on here does. I have family that raises chickens, and would like to add brewer's yeast to the feed. I'm not sure of the reasoning, perhaps all the B vitamins?
Anyways, I could always give them the yeast cake after a batch of beer, but I was wondering if there is a simple/cheap way for them to make their own yeast.
If you add yeast to a simple sugar water mixture (let's say to around 1.040 SG), would the resulting production of yeast lack their nutritional value because the sugar and water has no real value when compared to wort?
Would using something else like applejuice provide anything better, or it still too simple?
