Prestige Turbo Yeast and Its Applications

This Turbo yeast features a strain of fast fermenting yeast along with an exclusive mix of nutrients that produce vigorous fermentation, producing washes with alcohol strengths between 14%-20% when fermented properly. Unlike some less costly “fancy” fermentation sugars, this yeast can be used with common white household sugar or Castor Sugar instead to create an exceptionally clean alcohol base without off-flavors and off-odours.

These ingredients combine to produce an ideal fermented wash that you can then customize using our selection of essences. Once added to the still, these essences dissolve quickly and produce high quality beverages that rival some of the better known brands.

Turbo Yeast Classic is one of the world’s best selling Turbo Yeast varieties and provides excellent temperature tolerance with a maximum alcohol level of 23% when using sucrose as the sole sugar source. In addition, this batch also contains special mineral absorbents which enhance distillate quality.

Add boiling water to the sachet of Classic and stir until fully dissolved, topping off to 25 liters (6.5 gallons, 26.5 US quarts) using cold water so as to achieve the temperature indicated on your chart. Next add yeast, mix thoroughly, then continue as directed with remaining ingredients.

Fermenters must remain at an ideal temperature throughout fermentation as this allows yeast to convert sugar to alcohol in an efficient way. Failing to do this, your wash may contain too much Sulphur which results in an unpleasant rotten egg aroma and taste in your drink.

Prestige Turbo Yeast and Troubleshooting

Prestige Turbo Yeast and troubleshooting

Turbo yeast has been specifically developed for alcohol fermentation, featuring an exclusive combination of minerals, vitamins, and amino acids to extract more sugar and create stronger products. Furthermore, it’s bacteria free – helping ensure no contamination of your wash.

Turbo Yeast comes in five distinct varieties to meet the specific needs and environments in which fermentation takes place. Each variety specializes in speed, temperature, purity or yield conditions that might arise during its fermentation.

Classic 6 and Classic 8 Turbo Yeasts have been specially formulated to ferment 6 kg sugar at various temperatures across a broad temperature range, producing an exceptionally clean tasting spirit. You can use them for either the Spirits Wash stage of your still, or higher ABV fermentations with additional sugar added over several days.

These Turbos are fast and can make 14% alcohol in as little as three days, providing excellent all-round performance regardless of where your operation takes place.

Black Label Turbo yeast can produce 14% in as little as five days when following its instructions precisely. One 90gm sachet will ferment 25 litres of mash and is temperature-tolerant – perfect for larger batches in distilleries where sugar must first be fully dissolved before adding any yeast; stir continuously after addition until no visible yeast particles remain visible in solution.
