QUESTION 1.) I bought a bottle of yeast nutrient yesterday (just says "Diammonium Phosphate). I'm going to use it in my barley wine today. The instructions on the bottle say: 1 tsp. per gallon must.
I plan on tossing this when there is 15 minutes left in the boil.
This seems like a dumb question but I just want to make sure. Do I put 5 teaspoons in the brew pot or 3 teaspoons? I am doing 3 gallon boils.
I know I'm totally over analyzing this!
QUESTION 2.) I was told to use 2.5 packs of nottingham dry yeast in my barley wine. My question is how much water should I use to rehydrate?
for one packet it says to use 4 oz. of water. I need 2.5 packets. So would I boil 8 oz. of water and then let it cool down to 86 degrees to rehydrate?
I think I would need more water right. Some is going to be boiled away.
I guess to make a long story short, How do I go about rehydrating 2.5 packets of Dry yeast. Thanks!
