Whisky Yeast with AG is a real distillery whisky yeast with Amyloglucosidase, and is used in some of the finest whisky distilleries in the world. Whisky Yeast contains no nutrients, and is intended for grain mash fermentation.

Ian Smiley, author of the book Making Pure Corn Whiskey, tested the yeast and says it's the best whiskey yeast he ever tried, and that it adds great value to the taste. This yeast is absolutely essential in the making of top quality whisky without the use of essences.

Guidelines for Use:

  • This formulation is made up of a commercial distillery yeast strain with amyloglucosidase, an enzyme used to break down non-fermtable sugars to fermentable sugars in corn and grain mashes. It ferments extremely efficiently, improving yield.
  • To avoid contamination, no starter culture is necessary.

1. Sprinkle Prestige Whisky Turbo Yeast yeast on the surface of room temperature mash.
2. Wait 15 minutes, then stir into mash.

Ingredients: Active Dried Yeast / Amyloglucosidase

    Good yeast.

    Posted by robert garringer on Jan 8th 2020

    It is a reall good yeast .It fermented alot faster than i expected. I got 11 percent out of my normal grain bill. Which is cracked corn distillers barley and a little rye.In the still i run my stuff pretty slow but but with useing this yeast it seemed to like it just a little slower than my nornal pace. It is a clean performer. But the price is the only reason i would not give five stars.

    I added this yeast to a corn mash and it digested the sugar completely in 3 days at 75 oF. The yeast adds to the distinctive taste of the corn.

    Bought this yeast for a corn meal, barley, and sugar mash. It’s super easy to use, just wait until the mash is cooled below 80 (mine was 83), sprinkle on top, wait fifteen minutes and shake the fermenter around a little to mix it in. Bubbles started in the airlock about 6 hours later. This one starts off with a sweet smell that turns awful after a few days. It behaves and won’t blow the fermenter. No messes. It’s on day three it’s just bubbling away calmly. Hoping for a good run when it finishes.

    Corn Whisky Yeast

    Posted by Jim on Apr 19th 2013

    I am using this in a 8.5 lb flaked maize and 1.5 lb. Distillers malted barley mash. Ph is 5.8 and 2 tsp of gypsum mash. I just can't say enough about this yeast. The flavor is spectacular to say the least. It runs out at 160 on the first run every time. I'm still playing with the ferment temps. It looks like 75deg. Is where it likes to work based on my mash. I have found my yeast of choice.
