Default Yeast fuel

I got some Yeast Fuel in my last order from AHBS and was wondering if I am supposed to use that in my starter or not.

It always amaizes me how Brew Supply Shops rename stuff. If it is yeast nutriant then yes, use it in your starter. I hope it says on the package how much to use? Ask your LHBS if not. Usually you put it in the flask when boiling the DME.

It is Yeast Fuel brand yeast nutrient. You can use it in the starter or add to the batch while boiling.
