Prestige Turbo Yeast and Flavor Development

Others report that Turbo Yeast may cause off flavors in their distillate while others believe if one follows the product specifications carefully they can get amazing results. It is very important to keep in mind that yeast requires nutrition like any living organism; sugar alone cannot sustain its existence so many packages come equipped with a mix of essential nutrient supplements as well as Turbo Yeast.

There can be numerous reasons for fermentation to become stuck, including choosing the wrong strain of yeast (typically baker’s yeast), having too low of a temperature tolerance or too high an alcohol percentage. A nutrient package provides support to enable yeast to overcome these hurdles and continue fermenting the wash or mash, as well as ensure no Sulphur is formed which would give off an unpleasant rotten egg smell and flavor.

Our yeast is of superior quality and has stood the test of time. You can judge its quality by its ability to quickly reach high alcohol content fermentation without producing off flavors associated with other cheaper brands’ mineral impurities. Mineral absorbents further ensure its cleanliness by neutralizing any off flavors created by mineral impurities found within its formulation.

This yeast is highly recommended for those looking to craft superior tasting vodka and fruit schnapps, as its extractive powers allow you to bring out all of the fruits’ unique flavors exceptionally well. Plus, its high alcohol fermentation levels (up to 18% or even 20% alcohol content!) means it works even with lower sugar mashes when given enough nutrients.
