Just started a batch of imperial red rye, and cannot find my normal yeast nutrient, but have Wyeast Wine Nutrient Blend for Mead, Cider, Skake, and distilling.

Can I use this for my S-04 yeast in this brew? Would it help, do nothing, or harm?

Many thanks!

Am sure it would be just fine. I don't think wine yeast nutrient is any different than the beer one.

Both beer and wine yeasts are Saccharomyces, so this nutrient should be fine. However, watch the directions, as wine must has less nutrients naturally present than wort, so the directions will add more to wine than beer.
