Default Wyeast Nutrient (Brewers vs Vinters)

So I just realized that the Wyeast Nutrient I have been using for the last 5 months is for wine! Now the beer I have brewed since that time has been just fine so I am not concerned in the least bit, but I was curious if there was really any different between the Wyeast Brewer's Nutrient and the Wyeast Vinter's Choice Nutrient? Is this a stupid question?

According to their website the descriptions are identical http://www.wyeastlab.com/hb_products.cfm. I doubt there is any substantial difference other than the label on the package. Yeast is yeast.

Yeah I saw that too which is kinda what got me wondering about it. Is it the SAME thing with a different name?

Weird, my Wyeast nutrient is generic, and has dosing info for beer and wine that's slightly different (but beer has a LOT of nitrogen in it so that's probably why).
