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

    Turbp 48 and Vodka

    Posted by Dan on Nov 16th 2017

    Ran one to one comparison of Turbo 48 (High Spirits) and their more expensive competitor. Same amount of sugar, same fermenting conditions. Turbo had a slightly higher conversion ratio (17% final alcohol vs 15%). I distilled them separately and could not tell the difference (same percent hearts, and same final taste). High Spirits is half the price. It works for me.

    Turbo 48 Yeast

    Posted by Jeffrey Albert on Nov 7th 2017

    Works as described. I don't have a 95 degree place to use this, so I set my fermenters on heating pads and wrap the whole thing in a sleeping bag. Usually done fermenting in 4 days.

    Makes a good mash with nice ABV. The only problem is sometimes the packages get torn during shipping. Good consistent product though

    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.
