I was just curious if any of you recommended using any kind of yeast nutrients to ensure a healthier fermentation. If so, what types would you recommend? Are there any beers that would be more in need of a nutrient?
Being relatively new into brewing, I try to eliminate any possible issues. I throw in a half teaspoon of Wyeast nutrients into my beer, and even a dash into my starters. The Wyeast is about the same price as regular nutrients, but you use much, much less. I've probably got about 8 or 10 batches on my bottle and have about half left.
Sometimes I ferment down too far though. I just had a pale ale that was supposed to stop at 1.016 with Safale S-05 go down to 1.010!
