Re: My corn flake mash
Go to msg#27084 and read that and the others on the thread on DAP.
What im using now is Expert Gardener All-Purpose Plant Food - 24-8-16
along with used trub, Epson salts, tomato paste and the EC-1118.
But based on Harry's recommendations, reduced the amount to 3
tablespoons to begin with and 1 TBS 1/2 way through.
You can get it at Walmart - 2.99 for 1.5 lbs.

Thanks for the tip Jim. I read Bill's notes. They were helpful. So
is what I did.
I added the yeast nutrient and stirred. 12hours later the bubbling had
nearly stopped so I just claked it up to a lesson learned and
it. Did 2 strip runs and I am doing the spirit run now. Started
sour mash yesterday. Reused all the trub, 1 1/2 gallons backset, 7lbs
sugar, 2TBS yeast nutrient, topped it up with water to 5 1/2 gallons.
aerated for 5 hours. I mixed 1 TBS of epsom salt, a 6oz can of tomato
paste, and a small amount of water in a pan and added it during
aeration. The yeast seems to be very happy and is bubbling away. I'll
let ya now how it works out. (Opps, forgot to take the SG. Will assume
it was 1.094, the same as the first two batches)
Now for the question. Should I use the epsom salt and tomato paste
along with, or in lieu of, the yeast nutrient. I would like to get off
the yeast nutrient (I am cheap hehehe) so what would be a good
substitute? I have read about a multi-vitamin working. Anything else
