Default use yeast nutrient?

Quick question....

I bought some yeast nutrient to use in my cider, but I was wondering if I should put it in my pale ale I've got on the stove now. Safele us-05 dry yeast.

Thanks.

I would. Mostly because there's no reason not to, and I have a 4oz packet of Wyeast nutrient - enough for 44 batches. Warm fuzzies from thinking you're doing something nice for your yeasties are enough, no?

It sure won't hurt anything.

Ok thanks. I'll put it in. I wasn't sure if it was a cider specific tool or not.

I see it as cheap insurance. I've used a nutrient for two batches and had vigorous fermentation for both.

I always use it. I either use it in my starters for liquid yeast or throw it in the wort with 10 minutes remaining if I'm using dry yeast. Give the yeasties some love and they'll repay you with some killer brew.
