Alcotec Triple Still
A turbo yeast in the "pure" class
Alcotec Triple Still is actually not just another pure turbo yeast, it's the current leader of purity in fermentation. With a newly developed yeast strain, specialised in clean fermentation, we can reach fairly high alcohol without producing any large amount of volatiles or off-flavours.
The liquid activated carbon is also included
The carbon is the icing on the cake - it adds the final purity to your brew. The aim during the development was to ferment a half strength Vodka with no need for further distillation or carbon treatment and this is exactly what the Alcotec Triple Still does.
If you were to put the wash through a still (where legal) you would get fantastic results but it may be a bit of overkill.
Makes 25 litres of alcohol Add either 7 kgs of Brewing Sugar (Dextrose Mononydrate) or 6 kgs of normal white granulated sugar
1. Mix hot and cold water to a liquid temperature of 30 °C in a sterilized fermenter (capable ofholding minimum 27 litres). Adjust volume to exactly 21 litres.
2. Add either 7 kgs of Brewing Sugar (Dextrose Mononydrate) or 6 kgs of normal white granulatedsugar and mix well until liquid is completely clear.
3. Add contents of both sachets (yeast/nutrient and activated carbon) to the liquid. NOTE: shakethe carbon sachet before opening to make sure there are no lumps, especially near theedges of the sachet.
Fermentation: 7 days
4. Leave to ferment at room temperature (18 °C - 24 °C) for 7 days (until no more activity - cantake 1-2 days extra if cool room temp).
NOTE: If ambient temperature is above 24 °Cyour fermentation will stick prematurely.
NOTE: Always consider the risk of leaks, frothing etc when choosing where to place fermenter.
Clearing: 2 days
5. Add a good fining agent (Alcotec Turbo Klar or similar) and leave to clear for 2 days (the washdoes not have to be completely clear for distilling) or longer if you plan to use it without distilling.
NOTE: It is important to use turbo clear, otherwise unwanted substances absorbed duringfermentation will be released again during boiling.
