Prestige Turbo Yeast

Gert Strand AB’s Black Label Turbo Yeast is an ideal solution for both brewers and distillers looking to reduce time and cost associated with producing spirits using traditional methods. This powerful yeast produces high alcohol concentration quickly by simply following instructions, cutting production times down significantly while speeding up processes dramatically. Using it saves both time and money; traditional methods take far longer.

This strain of yeast is specially designed to withstand high alcohol and temperature levels, producing up to 20% alcohol production within several days. Perfect for making spirits from sugar or starchy materials like molasses, it comes complete with mineral/nutrient mixture and instructions to assist the fermentation process.

Ingredients in the sachet are mixed with water and allowed to ferment, producing alcohol at an appropriate level. Once that level has been achieved, distillation can take place; typically this takes less than a day and uses either stills or potstills depending on what kind of sugars are available for production.

Turbo yeast may be useful when creating high-alcohol beverages, but it may alter the flavor profile too much for complex flavors to develop properly. If this is what you desire, traditional distillers yeast could provide more options than turbo yeast does.

Prestige Turbo Yeast – How Does it Work?

Alcohol production requires many different ingredients in order for fermentation to occur successfully, otherwise you risk ending up with a sticky wash instead of alcohol. Common reasons for failed fermentations include using the incorrect yeast strain (bakers yeast) or not providing enough nutrition, or excessive heat levels during the fermenting liquid causing its fermentation to cease altogether.

To achieve successful fermentation, the water you add must be of very high quality, free from bacteria or microbes that could contaminate and kill off yeast. Furthermore, your mash must also be at the appropriate temperature; too cold or too hot temperatures could kill off the yeast altogether.

There are various Yeast Packs available and each one is tailored specifically to produce certain kinds of alcohol, for instance the Prestige Turbo Pack is best used when crafting mash and alco base alcohol but should not be used when creating fruit Schnapps.

Black Label Turbo Yeast is one of the most sought-after yeast packs, easily fermenting 8 kg of sugar up to 18% and providing superior stress and temperature tolerance.

All Yeast packs include both yeast and nutrients formulated to assist it with fermenting a pure sugar/water solution. They include ingredients designed to reduce fusel oils and byproducts, stabilize pH levels in mashes, prevent foaming, boost temperature tolerance and promote fermentation.
