      Why salt?  Salt retards yeast activity.  Osmosis of salt into the cell through the membrane wall.  In baking, a little salt makes your bread taste better.  But bakers compensate for the yeast slow-down by using extra yeast. Ask any old baker.  (yes I was one for 25 years before going on to other things, like 'stillin').
      In ferments meant for beverages, salt just slows the fermentation unnecessarily.

        I put about two tablespoons of salt into my wash just before distilling to flavor it and it does make a difference, I would not put it into the wash while its working.  I add gypson to soften the water which is the same thing epsom salts do.
