    Since your gravity stayed constant, I would say you are Ok. Bubbling of the airlock can just be
    caused by degassing. Usually from fluctuation in temperature or nucleation points in the trub

  • Posted in thread: Home-made yeast nutrient/energizer? on 07-19-2015 at 07:43 PM
    Whenever I make cider, I never use nutrient. I rehydrate a packet of notty or s04 and pitch.
    That said, if you are more comfortable adding nutrient, I would just boil the whole packet of
    old yeast. Mo...

    wine before but i say give it a go. 1056 is neutral so should be alright

    form bigger ...

    I do notice that WLP400 krausen lingers for awhile. Usually rocking the carboy gently can cause

    mutate towa...

    Oh, I'm in England too, lol. I am from the US aand used to everyone being in the US that I tend
    to answer for that. But, in the UK I tend to buy from the Malt Miller for all my ingredients. I
