      For those who want a cheap and easy B-complex addition to their wash,
      find a pill crusher (the only one I could find screws down on the pill
      turning it instantly to powder) and use your basic human B-complex vits. I
      add .125 of a teaspoon (what, a large match head?) to a 20L wash. Probably
      too much but the flavor doesn't carry over. Do not use vits with added iron.
      I understand that iron will hinder, harm or kill the yeast. The vitamin
      powder doesn't mix well in cold water so I add mine to the hot (boiling)
      water when dissolving the sugar. The wash takes on the same color as when
      after taking a couple while drinking coffee. No, I won't go into that
