    Default Advanced Nutrients decoded

    I've been having a look at Advanced Nutrients and it dawned on me how I could replicate these. I've been reading about using Brewer's yeast on plants. But no where does it say if the yeast should be put in water and bubbled for a day before use or added to water immediately before use. Anyone know how to use Brewer's yeast?

    Any idea why AN uses so much whey? What are they feeding with that protein?

    I've often wondered this myself, but I want to make a couple of things clear first.
    I don't think AN is setting the standard, I think Greenplanet is just as good and I have smoked champion winning buds grown with it, likewise for Dutchmaster, likewise for Canna.
    But all that aside, AN does make their information a bit more readily available, imo. It's sort of like how the myth of the pyramids as tombs just became accepted because so many people wrote it down and talked about it and repeated it.... and repeated it....

    Back to your original question, I add it, very lightly, to my soil. On the fact sheet at the bulkbarn is says it contains thiamine, and i think something else, it's already present. I assume it is being added for that reason. If it is being added for it's microbial content, then adding it to the soil is also just as good as making a tea out of it, so you're still covered. However, in good conscious, I h ave also tested it in teas suspecting that perhaps a ferment byproduct was the real score. I have only noticed that my compost teas tend to sweeten up about 50% faster than previously. So I can only hope they are acting as catalysts and not eating up all the stuff before the competing microlife.

    I'd love a definite answer myself.

    I can hazard a guess that we've found the source of all their extra amino acids.

    After all, protein is made up of... you got it

    Yep, even my elementary science knowledge states that amino acids are what makes up protein. I just can't figure out what they think can utilize them... Not the plant directly.

    Good sales pitch for one, other than that maybe the microherd can make use of them but I too doubt that the roots can absorb them.

    I would guess that AN uses whey due to its usually large amount of lactobacilus that would be in it. when lactobacilus is covered with the whey protein it can survive longer and in harsher and depending on the acidity of the whey lactic acid could also play a role. It is the main catalyst in Bokashi composting and is VERY beneficial.

    When I add yeast to my teas I add it before bubbling as it loves an aerobic environment.

    I use bakers yeast to reduce any amount of alcohol that may be incidental.
