I am making a 6 gallon batch of apple wine, fresh pressed juice today, the recipe I used called for 9 tsp of yeast nutrient for 6 gallons, I used wyeast nutrient,was suggested by store as I am planning on using wyeast 4242 yeast, my sg was at 1.085, ph at about 3.0 a little over, did I use to much yeast additive, will this fall out on its own or do I have a problem, any advice would be appreciated thanks kevin

You should be fine. Check the nutrient package and see what the mfg. suggests. Next time, add half the nutrient up front and the second half when the s.g. gets down to 1.060 or so. Helps keep you in fresh nutrient for the final part of the ferment. Arne.
