I'm trying my first, 1-gallon batch of dandelion wine. Some recipes say "1 packet" of brewer's yeast, and mine doesn't even specify an amount. It also specifies to add "yeast nutrient," which my local store does not carry and I've heard it can be made without if you have patience. What's a good amount to use?
Edit: Sorry, to be clear, my local store does not sell "packets", they sell a fist-sized bag (with no instructions on it), which I'm pretty sure is dozens of times more than what I need for a gallon batch. I can't seem to find a recipe that specifies the volume of a "packet".
