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

    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.

    I have tried a few other whiskey yeast,but Prestige WD/with/AG, is by far the best that I have ran across. I have even had great results adding a little extra in cold weather when I could not keep tempts around 85'F. Try a few different yeast and you will find the one that gives you the flavor you like. Its the only way to learn the difference. " I learned to like this one"

    I have used this yeast to make Scotch and Bourbon with great results! Friends that tasted them could not believe they were home-made whiskys.
