View Full Version : Some Observations Using Servomyces

White Labs makes this product and I have used it in my last 3 brews. I must say this stuff rocks! I've been getting a much faster and more vigorous fermentation. The big thing is that all 3 brews final gravity dropped 2 points lower than expected. Anyone else use this with similar results?

I have not used it but my LHBS carries it. His crew (and myself included) have been of the opinion that a well made starter will negate the effects of it. I have no science to back that up as I have never used it but that is my opinion. I may try it some time but I doubt it.

I have been using it with a starter and can still see results which to me is very impressive for a nutrient. I think it would be a great addition to high gravity brews.
Servomyces Yeast Nutrient
Servomyces is a nutritional yeast supplement (GMO free) that was originally developed for German brewers by Weihenstephan and the Munich University. It conforms to the restrictions of Reinheitsgebot. Servomyces enables any yeast strain's ability to incorporate essential nutrients into its cellular structure. Tested in breweries around the world, it has been proven to:
* Cut down fermentation time
* Increase flocculation
* Greatly reduce harsh sulfur notes
* Improve the health and viability of yeast
* Reduce levels of diacetyl at the end of primary fermentation
* Produce faster, more complete attenuations
* Increase yeast production for a better harvest
* Improve the quality of the finished product
