In case it wasn't made clear: Beer yeast and Mead/wine yeast ARE NOT
THE SAME. They have different nutrient requirements, p[roduce
different effects, like different sugars. At least, this is what the
literature leads one to believe. Acton and Duncan contains a clear
warning not to use Brewers (beer) yeast for making Mead, as it will
produce the "wrong" flavor. Similarly, I expect it would be a *bad*
idea to use yeast nutrient intended for mead or fruit wine with
brewers yeast, or vice versa.
