Default Accidentally used yeast energizer in my beer.

I forgot that I was out of my go-to Wyeast yeast nutrient during my last brew day, an I.P.A with homegrown hops. I had some LD Carlson yeast energizer lying around from mead making and used the recommended 1/2 tsp. per gallon. I figured that it would be okay but am second guessing myself because the energizer is recommended for wine.

So, I used 2.5 tsp. for my 5 gallon batch.

Will I notice any off flavors from using the energizer at this high a dose and in beer as opposed to wine?

For the record, I do not plan on using the energizer again for my beers.

You're fine... energizers have some additional stuff that the yeast needs that are usually provided by the wort but often absent in wine must and meads...
