Alcotec 48 - Turbo Yeast
Making alcohol in 48 hours is no longer difficult - or go for 20% in 5 days!
With the use of Alcotec 48 turbo yeast you can decide when you start fermentation whether you want to make moderate amount of alcohol and fast (14% in 2 days), or high levels of alcohol over a little longer period (20% in 5 days).
It simply depends on the amount of sugar you add - 6kgs per 25 litres or 8kgs per 25 litres
What sugar to use?Either plain white sugar (at the amounts stated in the normal recipe), or for better solubility, use brewing sugar (Dextrose Monohydrate) but remember to dose another 10% to compensate for the water molecule.
Temperature tolerance this turbo yeast is considerably more tolerant to high temperatures than the Alcotec 24, or any older recipe such as the Alcotec 6 or Alcotec 8. The optimum is still ambient (and liquid) temperature around 25 C, but it is no disaster if the ambient temperature shoots a bit over 30 C.
