I just got a packet shipped from my HBS that says yeast nutrient and energiser salts. (Tron0zymol)

Ingredients:

Diammonim Phosphate
magnesium sulphate
magnesium carbonate
albumin
nicotinamide
aueurine hydrochloride
trace minerals
trace vitamins

Does anyone know whether I can use this instead of the nutrient and energiser?

great recipe. i've made over 100 gallons of this stuff, in different flavourings. what i liked best was the original recipe, half the back sweetening [3 cups],tweaked it so its around 13%ABV finished. on a hot summer day, over ice, its so light and refreshing that you might get hammered before you realize it. all my friends absolutely loved it, but there were a few comments about the unexpected strength.[ all good in the end].also found out it makes a great mixer for blender drinks with fruit and a few ounces of hard liquor. tried orange, grapefruit, but original, [or with lime juice] was best

So I just checked out the official Skeeter Pee site, sounds awesome! I just happen to have a batch of white grape/raspberry in its 3rd day of primary, so by payday its slurry should be spot on for the pee. I do believe I will give it a shot!

So today I had planned to start the skeeter pee, but I needed a few things from my brew shop. When I got there, they closed down! My white grape raspberry's primary fermentation was really petering out as well, so time was of the essence. I racked the WG/rasp and measured a gallon of cool water and rinsed the slurry from the bottom of the primary and then poured the gallon back into it's jug and added 1/2 tsp of nutrient and 1/2 tsp sugar....hopefully to keep the yeast alive and active for another day or so...till I get the stuff I need for the piss. The measured gallon and slurry will be one of the gallons for the piss. I can't think of any reason why it shouldn't work, but if any of you can, please post your objections for my edification and information.

I kept mine around 75-80F, it's done fermenting and degassed, gravity and time has cleared it well.

how "clear" should skeeter pee be? I started this batch 11/4/13 and just re-racked ... haven't use any of the fining agent yet ... do I really need to?

I haven't used the fining agent, it is about the same color. Maybe a tad more yellow. I have made 4 or 5 batches to great reviews, after it hits the secondary, I let it sit one to two weeks past fermentation then bottle.
