Wondering if yeast nutrient
Wondering if yeast nutrient, common when making alcohol, will also have a positive affect on sourdough starters. Yeast nutrient is often nitrogen based and can have b vitamins too. It helps for a good fermentation and prevents any stalling as well. One can find many different varieties sold in brewstores but you can also make a homemade version by boiling up some bakers yeast. Yeast will feed on dead yeast cells and it helps perk them up making them more efficient. Can anyone see any cons to boiling up a teaspoon of dried yeast in a little water and using this, when cooled down of course, to feed a sourdough starter?
