High Spirits Turbo 48 Turbo Yeast
  • 175g sachet (6.2 oz)
  • Each sachet yields 6.6 US Gallons (25L)
  • Certified Kosher (Pareve)
  • Urea Free

High Spirits Turbo 48 will ferment to 14% in approximately 48 hours, or up to 18% in 5-7 days, just like other 48-hour turbo yeasts. What sets High Spirits Turbo 48 apart from other yeasts is that High Spirits does NOT contain Urea (using Urea in fermentation can increase production of ethyl carbamate, which is is known to cause cancer). Using Urea in beverage-grade fermentation is even against the law in some countries because of these health risks.

High Spirit Turbo 48's combination of a very high-temperature-tolerant (to over 100F!), neutral fermenting yeast and a special blend of minerals, vitamins, and nutrients offer the purest fermentation of any turbo yeast available. Produced in our Texas warehouse right here in the USA, High Spirits Turbo 48 Yeast is both fresh and affordable.

Guidelines for Use:
13lbs (6kg) sugar = 14% abv in 2 days 17lbs (7.6kg) sugar = 18% abv in 5-7 days

1. In an 8 gallon (30L) or larger fermenter, dissolve 13-17lbs (6-7.6kg) of granulated sugar into 2 gallons of hot water. Ensure that sugar is completely dissolved before continuing.
2. Using ice, cold, or hot water, top up to 6.6 gallons (25L) to obtain a liquid temperature of 95F (35C). Do not add turbo yeast until liquid temperature is at or below 95F (35C).
3. Add contents of package, stirring vigorously for 2 minutes or until contents are fully dissolved. Never re-hydrate turbo yeast in less that the full volume of liquid as it can kill the yeast.
4. Cover fermenter with a lid and airlock.
5. Allow to ferment at 86-100F (30-38C) for 2-7 days, or until complete.

Ingredients: Specially Selected Yeast, Yeast Nutrients (Ammonium Phosphate(Dibasic), Magnesium Sulfate), Trace Vitamins And Minerals

    High Spirits Turbo 48 Yeast

    Posted by Dan on Sep 12th 2017

    This works much better than Alcotek turbo yeast and costs less. The Alcotek did not ferment completely and I was left with a very sweet wash. This worked very well.

    Using with 'Amazing Still'

    Posted by Don on Mar 19th 2016

    I';m new to this, so learning day by day. Put Turbo 48 in sugar water as directed. Gurgles the airlock like mad within an hour. Five days later, distill in a "bucket-in-a-covered-bucket" with submersible heater, a la Amazing Still method. Filter through Brewhaus' charcoal pipe unit. At this point it tastes like a weak bourbon (!!!) Then I age it in 3-liter charred oak barrels for a few months, and man it comes out GREAT! This is great yeast for the price. Will be trying the Prestige Turbo Pure 48 (at a higher price) soon for comparison, but so far this High Spirits Turbo 48 has been beyond satisfactory for moonshine.

    Great alternative to Prestige

    Posted by K13B on Feb 25th 2016

    After several runs of this, I can say it is very clean. Even more so than Prestige; however, I am only getting 14-16% vs Prestige's 18% after a long ferment (30+ days). So the loss of volume vs the difference in price is well worth the switch. But if you want quantity at each ferment, you need to make some decisions. I still believe this is a better value over the normal 48hr Turbo's. Buy with confidence. It is cleaner and worth the price even with a very small reduction in %.

    Great for warmer climates

    Posted by BLINDEYE on Aug 11th 2015

    Good results per manufactures instruction. Clean, sanitize, distilled H2O, control temperature, degas and clarify...baby it and you will hit the high number. Makes clean, fine taste and smell low wine. Happy with result. Would recommend to friends.

    Very very good product

    Posted by Hurricane Shane on Dec 6th 2014

    I haven't used a Turbo in years. I just didn't like the smell they put off during the process, among other things. I do not know if it's the 'Urea Free' aspect of this Turbo. But the scent is actually quite pleasant. Not the overpowering pungent Oder I remember from a Turbo. If end product taste anything like the fermenting process smells? After filtering and a bit of age. It should be a very decent end product. If you haven't tried this Turbo? Please do. I do not see how anyone could be disappointed. And Happy Holidays People.

    Good Product

    Posted by Chirodrdl on Jul 6th 2014

    Great product. It took less than an hour to start fermenting. This is as good or better then the 48 hour prestige. I am sold on this high spirits, especially for the cheap price. You cannot beat this deal. Going to order about 25 of these ASAP. This stuff is great!!!! Its nonstop bubbling. I sat a brick on my barrel to keep the top from blowing off.lol
