Some brewers like to add yeast nutrients during the last few minutes of the boil or at the start of fermentation. We normally do not use yeast nutrients as malt based wort is already an excellent source of the carbohydrates, amino acids, vitamins and minerals that yeast requires for successful fermentation. There is no harm however in supplementing if you have concerns with the health or performance of your yeast, especially if fermenting a very high gravity wort, a wort with a high amount of adjuncts or refined sugars (like table sugar), or when reusing yeast that has already been pitched multiple times. Refer to the instructions for your specific yeast nutrients for usage rates if you wish to use them in your beer.
