    My third sachet of Turbo Pure 48 is bubbling in my pantry as we speak. This stuff has never let me down. For a thin wash this yeast can't be beat.

    Completely new to brewing/distilling and after several batches I feel ready to rate some of the products. This is a never fail product for sugar washes! Good neutral comes through in large quantities and never failed to push 18-20 percent after fermentation! I like the whiskey yeast with AG for grain mashes for flavor though.

    Beyond expectations

    Posted by Bob on Dec 2nd 2010

    I'm new to this. Started out making wine. Don't like wine. Then I stumbled on this. Set the hydrometer to 20%. Added Turbo and man it boils. 10 days later I have a 40 proof dirty vodka. I can mix it up like a Mike's Lemonade and it tastes great (powdered lemonade, Sprit, no water). My next step is the simple distill method and to add clarrifier to the process. Very impressed with yeast! And look forward to years of extremely cheap and tasty vodka. This yeast doesn't taste like a yeasty bread, very little foam, starts easy and stay rolling. I figure I can get my Vodka down to 1 dollar a gallon. Basically 20 bucks a year will cover me!
