just got some and will be using it for the first time. i originally bought for my yeast starter then read it can go into the boil as well. for some reason i can find any material on how to use this stuff, how much to use, and if i can/should use it in both? thanks for the help.

I use 1/4 tsp for starters and 1/2 tsp for my 5 gallon batches. The latter came from the instructions on my vial of it. The starter dose was either from this forum somewhere or the Yeast book; don't recall.
