Diammonium Phosphate (DAP) is used as a source of nitrogen for yeast. Along with glucose and sucrose, nitrogen is one of the most important nutrients that is needed by yeast to complete a healthy fermentation. Use .5 - .75 grams per gallon (1/2 tsp per 5 gallons) of must, to aid yeast and help reduce later problems with hydrogen sulfide.
A rough approximate of weight is 1 tsp = 3.1 grams. We highly recommend using a scale to weigh the product for an accurate dose. We do not recommend relying on these rough conversions for accurate dosage rates.
