Turbo Yeast For Distilleries, high alcohol yeast
Turbo yeast is comprised of a mix of very alcohol-tolerant yeast and complex nutrients that quickly ferment a sugar solution into alcohol. We supply two types of Turbos:
Produces 14% – 16% alcohol
Produces 18% – 20% alcohol
Many years ago our company produced the first Turbo yeast, high alcohol yeast consumer packed for the hobby market in Scandinavia. We have been supplying Turbo yeast to distilleries for years. All were tailor-made for each distillery. We have been consulted to solve problems with:
Too low an alcohol yield
Too low sugar to alcohol conversion
Quality problems or taste problems
So far, we have always ended up solving the problem.
Drawing from this experience we have found that one Turbo is preferred by 99% of all distilleries:
Temperature Tolerant Turbo Yeast, high alcohol yeast
This is an osmo tolerant (high sugar concentrations) and temperature tolerant Turbo yeast that ferments very pure to 14% in 2 days and to 16% in 4-5 days.
Temperature Tolerant Turbo Yeast is delivered in 25-kg sacks. You can test order a 25-kg sack, do a test run and compare with your current yeast. Minimum regular order is 5 sacks. Regular orders are always produced after order (to get freshest possible yeast). Dosage is 3.6 kg to 1000 liter fermentation. Click here for more info.
We also have a high alcohol tolerant Turbo yeast that can ferment very pure to 18%, if kept in temperature-controlled fermentation tanks at 25C, +-1C. If temperature is not held this steady it will not work: it will get over-heated and die because of the killing temperature. Also, it takes a week to ferment to 18%, needs more yeast and always needs cooling. All this together increases the price of the fermentation. We highly recommend using the Temperature Tolerant 14-16% yeast instead. It costs less, is very reliable, and also has a “margin” to overcome minor human errors with temperature etc.
