    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!

    well no bs this is a TURBO YEAST i've used a couple and this one is just as good as any out there. comes in a very nice gold package and is much whiter and cleaner (pure white) than any store bought yeast (light and dark brown). the best i ever got with fast acting store yeast is a 2 quarts out of 4-5 gallons. you need distillers yeast period. and with this turbo 48 it starts bubbling like CRAZY!!! in less than 1 hour!!! you just aint cookin mash until you see and smell this stuff working. and if you put 20 lbs. sugar, 4-5 lbs. cornmeal/cracked corn, and 32 oz. molasses in 7 gals. DISTILLED WATER ONLY PPL (this is a small application so dont skip out now), you get 20% not %18. and dont forget a good charcoal water filter, run it through 4-5 times. i've been doin this for a while now and prefer quality over quantity and this stuff and recipe is both i assure you. good luck and get your ETHANOL LICENSE'S FIRST. its not hard and apparently well worth it.

    Great product

    This is by far the best yeast for basic sugar washes. Like a previous review stated - this is idiot proof. I have never had a packet get stuck. I wish I could say the same for the others yeasts here. This is a perfect starter yeast for the people new to the hobby. Directions are clear and simple. It says 18% but you can get 20% going slower. This is all I buy for a basic wash. Recommend highly!

    I followed the directions on the packet and it worked exceedingly well.

    This Stuff is CRAZY!!

    Posted by DougаW on Sep 20th 2008

    Pitched the yeast in a 50 liter all grain mash (thats half the recommended dosage), and this stuff took off in 30 minutes. Its so rediculous how much perculation you get from this yeast compared to any other! I put my ear up to the airlock and could have sworn i was driving a dually.

    No mater what u do with this yeast the product will be what ur looking for. It is almost indestructible i recently ran out and only used 1/3 the recommended amount. and it still produced an 18% product. If u want high abv u are gonna have to wait a little longer than stated but not by much, highly recommended, its all i will use now.
