Is there any benefits to adding gypsum, epsom salt, cacl2 to your starters? I use DME and RO...just wondering if adjustments need to be made for optimal yeast growth...

You're not mashing anything, and likely decanting most of the spent beer anyway.
I see no point in those salts wrt starters.
However, a little DAP won't hurt...

Cheers!
