I will be making some experiment gallons that will basically be pure fruit juice and honey. My question is, should I still use nutrients as I normally would, or tone it down a bit? The juice will be cranberry, blueberry, currant, cherry, and apple if that matters.
Thanks,
wickerman

If its straight juice then yes.

I'd reduce them some for whole fruit but not juice........

I add nutrient to every non-beer fermentation.
