Proper nutrition is most important during the growth phase of fermentation where the yeast are
getting used to their new environment (your wort) and propagating and gearing up their

I would worry more about filtering your water. I top off with unboiled all the time and no

Side question: What if you are using a regulator that is marked for CO2 but measures output by
cfh (cubic feet per hour). Does this work the same way as a psi regulator and there is a just a

CFH = Cubic Feet per Hour. I have the same one. 1 cfh = 0.929 L/hr.

I know exploding bottle syndrome is caused by overcarbonation and bottling your batch before
fermentation is complete. I just had an explosion tonight however from a batch that doesn't fit

Sounds like everything is good! Yes bottle after two weeks, then you can drink those bottles
