Getting together indegrients at the moment for my first attempt.

Where do people get the nutrients for these? I've seem Go-Ferm used for the rehydrating of the yeast and Fermaid-K for the nutrient additions, but can't seem to source them here, outside of a 1kg bag on the THBC.

Alternatives/sources for getting them?
Fermenting: IPA, Lambic, Mead
Conditioning: Lambic, Cider, RIS, Ole Ale, Saison
On Tap: IPA, Helles, Best Bitter

Unfortunately, I don't have a source for these products. I use Youngs yeast nutrient, which is just diammonium phosphate (DAP). I think GoFerm is also DAP based, or maybe it's the other one you mentioned.

Yeah I have youngs as well. Cool, I'll just use that. One of them isn't dap based, as that is bad for dry yeast when it's rehydrating I believe, so I'll just use it on days 1, 3 and 5 and degas the other days.

If you have a yeast starter on the go you could boil some and use that as nutrient. Them yeasties will eat other yeasties. Savages.

Here is a source for fermaid k http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/FERMAID-K-Complete-Yeast-Nutrient-Wine-Making-Home-Brew-500G-/232232913434?hash=item3612290a1a:g:f9AAAOSwQTVV8lJj
Wouldn't you know it as soon as I got some fermaid K fermaid O is now all the rage and can't find a source for it. Sure at least we are use to being behind the times here. Also you can find smaller amounts of goferm on eBay too. Happy mazing!
