ah haa thanks for the chemical name. Is that all i would need? I can check.
I do have access to bee pollen... is that enough on its own?
How much per liter/ gallon for each of those?

Can i add the nutrient/ energizer/ acid straight to primary fermenter thats already going full-bore?

P.S. Any idea is Zinc Oxide is useful? I happen to have some in my office, as we are working on a deal to export 700 metric tons of it. I also have Sodium Tripolyphosphate... but i think its industrial grade...

Another reason not to boil honey when making mead: Honey which comes from local bees carries pollen and pathogens relevant to your area. Consuming these natural medicines will boost your resistance to local pollens and other allergens. Boiling destroys them.
If all else fails, just drink more mead anyway...

I've HEARD that you can use grape-nuts, cook them and add in with your starter. They contain malted-barley-flour, dried yeast, and a crap load of vitamins. But I'll bet boiling an old yeast cake works well too. I have yet to try it but I plan on it.

I have read about that... good suggestion, but i cant get Grape-nuts here... maybe easier to get multi-vitamins, bee pollen, or food-grade chemicals...

could be taken to suggest that epsom salts were (in part) an energizer - a point that it appears we both agree it is not...

Bee pollen, 1 tbsp per gallon.
Call it 4 mL / L metric.
I won't swear it has everything the yeast needs, but it has a lot of stuff.
