  1. Default Of nutrients and Europe

    I have read quite a bit about things suchs as Fermaid K and Lavin yeast and all.

    Is there a good guide or such to such things, and where to get them in Europe.

    The old country here seems to have only Kitzinger All Purpose and the likes. As well as generic Yesat Nutrients and Citrus Acid.

  2. Default Re: Of nutrients and Europe

    At www.brouwland.nl they offer several wine yeasts. At www.hobbybrouwen.nl/forum (a dutch forum about beer brewing) there's a guy called "SiriS" who sells several Lalvin products, including Fermaid K. I don't know if he carries wine yeasts.

  3. Default Re: Of nutrients and Europe

    Thanx, I'll check that out.

    Btw, I am to conclude that you are a fellow Dutch mead maker?

    Hey, I'm wondering if I can get an update on this question from nearly 10 years ago.

    Anyone know of a shop selling fermaid k and diammonium phosphate?

    ...additionally, I do have some Young's Yest Nutrient and some Tronozymol from some previous fruitwine experiments. Should I just use those instead? I'm not really sure what they are made of.

    The youngsters stuff is a good approximation of DAP (its main ingredient though both the listed ingredients are nitrogenous).

    The Tronozymol won't be the same "recipe" as FermaidK, but again it's not far off and seems to supply a similar level of non nitrogen elements i.e. thiamine etc, though whether it contains the same level of nitrogen/DAP I don't know, but it seems to do the job in the same way.

    If you're gonna use only one then the Tronozymol should be it. If you then want to up the nitrogen provision, use some young as well.

    When I don't have FermaidK available I use 2 parts Tronozymol to 1 part Youngs........

    Do you stagger these additions?

    It's easy to work out the required amount if you know how much nitrogen and other non nitrogenous nutrient is supplied.

    which is why, if possible, I try to use Fermaid and DAP as that can be weighed out with some degree of accuracy.

    There'd be no guarantee of accuracy if you use Tronozymol and Young's nutrient vice FermaidK and DAP, but I'd suspect you wouldn't be a million miles away.

    there's an academic paper out there I've read, but haven't got a link or copy that said about using up to 85% of the total nutrient can be front loaded with the last 15% added at the 1/3rd sugar break. Using that as a vague guide, how you'd split up the first amount/85% into more than one single dose would be up to you......

    The brouwmarkt catalog is rather mouthwatering. Transport or postage is likely an issue - but as least the stuff is obtainable.

    For UK readers as a small item of interest - Poundland are doing large bags of glass marbles for ... well ... a pound at the moment. I got some for topping up demijons to minimize the air.

    From what I understand from what Doug (GntlKnigt1) has posted previously, the brouwmarkt
    site sells the stuff wholesaled by brouwland (in Belgium). This certainly seems to be the case for the stuff listed on the Brupak website, though they in turn distribute to UK hbs. So in
    theory, if your nearest hbs has anything off the brupak site they should be able to get anything from the brouwland range....... Though I'd suspect you'd get nonsense about special orders etc.....

    If you like the listing on brouwmarkt, spend a month or so slavering over the brouwland site..... They really do seem to be an "Alladins cave" for home brewing.......

    As a homebrewer, I'm pretty well acquainted with the b land site and their great selection.
    I checked out the brouwmarkt page and didn't see any go ferm or fermaid. Maybe I need to order from America... Do you use morewine? I might also be in the market for a lees stirrer.

    Only when I am planning to go to Chicago. Mannye once offered to be a conduit for people. Morewine will not ship internationally. For what its worth, I've not had issues with the European DAP and nutrients.

    Hum ? I think you might be mixing up Morewine with Midwest Doug......

    https://plus.google.com/u/0/photos?p...37229498519256

    I know that Midwest are a PITA about international sales/shipping.

    As for AB Vickers, their website doesn't seem to list any wine supplies, either under their name or Lallemand, just beer stuff..... Not sure whether they'd even respond as to whether they know of any other supplier of Lallemand stuff in the UK, might email them to see......

    I just checked into it and morewine will ship internationally, but the rate starts at $44. Even if it is just one packet of yeast!

    It used to be that you couldn't get an accurate shipping quote because their dumb website would only list FedEx and UPS (thieving scum IMO), but if you're not in a rush and mail to ask first I understand they will also ship via USPS - not the quickest but a lot cheaper. I got a gallon of honey from Oklahoma and the shipping was "only" 70$, not bad for what ? 4 kg ? Something like that.......
