Hi Everyone!
I am making and apple cider wine(hard cider) using fresh pressed cider.
I added yeast nutrient per the packaging.
I bought some Cider House Premium Cider Yeast and now I see it contains yeast nutrient already.
Will there be too much yeast nutrient now?
Show I go with a different yeast that has no extra nutrients?
Thanks!!!

I wouldn't worry, the nutrient in the cider yeast packet is only trace nutrients, and is not intended to supply all nutrient needs. What size batch are you making?

Hi! Thanks for the response!
It's actually a 50 gallon batch (yes fifty).
I hoping the Cider House yeast works well:)

That's a lot at once. Curious about your setup?
