Was making a starter and dropped the entire bag of yeast nutrient into the pot during the boil. Making about a 1 liter starter and the bag said it was good for 5 to 6 gallons. Thought I would check if anyone had any thoughts on this?
Sometimes I drink and write things on here
  • Bottled: Orange Blossom Cider
  • Bottled: Scotch Oak Porter
  • Bottled:(for the last 4 strong) Belgian Tripel
  • In the works: Cherrywood smoked orange blossom honey belgian yeast super experiment
  • Drinking: Jameson Whiskey

ok... excellent learning experience. read the instructions first.

i wouldn't think this would be a problem. the yeast just have LOTS of food to eat now. but i would recommend getting more nutrient for the full batch. decant the excess water from the starter as always and use the yeast.
