Alcotec 48 Turbo


Alcotec 48 Turbo Yeast is probably the best selling turbo in the world. It is based around a "pure" yeast strain which is a temperature tolerant, high alcohol distillers strain. With the unique precisely composed nutrition, containing the nitrogen source, pH regulator, trace minerals, vitamins and an antifoaming agent, it is the perfect yeast compound for creating a high alcohol wash. It has a "dual" use, you can either use it for 20% (21% in special circumstances) alcohol in 5-6 days, or 14% in 48 hours (hence the name). The alcohol level is simply determined by the amount of sugar you add at start. Alcotec 48 includes mineral absorbents for ultra purity.

Recipe: Use 340 kg sucrose / m3 of sugar/water solution (32g/litre). Dissolve completely before adding Alcotec 48 mix. Alcotec 48 can be added directly to the sugar solution if tank has got mixing facilities, otherwise prepare a smaller mix of Alcotec 48 and water (proportions 1:10), mix well for 2-3 minutes and then pump into main tank.

Temperatures: Use mantle cooling for max 26°C (77°F) liquid temperature throughout fermentation. Start liquid temperature can be anywhere within 21-35°C (70-95°F). Optimal start liquid temperature is 30°C (86°F). A liquid temperature above 27°C (81°F) at any time during fermenation may result in a stuck fermentation.

pH: Alcotec 48 contains its own pH regulator, there is no need to adjust or monitor pH value.
