Voracious appetite Review by Orson

Product Rating:

Turbo yeast is both fast and does it ever consume sugar. I was amazed at how fast it worked and how much sugar it consumed and how attenuative it is. It generates a lot of heat so you may want to set your mash container in a tub or pool if possible.

If you are working with high sugar mashes this product is great. I've used it several times and had outstanding results. It delivers consistent alcohol content and does not stay suspended for very long.

Very fast acting Review by Redmond

It sure does produce a lot of alcohol in a hurry. The bucket I ferment this in warms up a lot too. I've used this for stuck fermentations, and for hard cider, and it does what it says.

EXPLOSIVE!!! Review by Ryan

Used this yeast on 2 different ales. RESPECT THIS YEAST!!! It is no joke. Before shaking the hell out of it, you may want to slightly swirl it around to see the pressure build up. Also, leave enough room in your carboy cuz there is a war going on in there!! I recommend this to everyone!!

It works as promised Review by Revis

This yeast works very quickly, and has a very high alcohol tolerance. I've never seen anything like it. Maybe Champagne yeast is the closest I've seen. I use it for making hard cider and it always comes through for me. Its done in a few days, but I give it a full week.

Good Stuff! Review by Xecros

I use this a lot and have had nothing but good luck with it. It does exactly what it advertises.

I follow the directions exactly, with the exception of not using an airlock. I use one because i'm in a very high dust, very dirty environment and I don't want my mash getting contaminated. it works just fine with an airlock

ready in 5 days Review by Tom

Product Rating:

I like the end product of the distillers yeast a bit better but I have had some huge misses with it where it didn't produce enough alcohol and you better be ready to wait 2 to 3 weeks for it to finish fermenting, it's a very slow process. This 48 hour turbo yeast is very reliable and produces a consistant percentage every time. I usually give it 4 or 5 days and it's just what I'm looking for minus the extra fusels that it produces. Make sure to watch your heads and tails closely with this but otherwise produces great quality stuff in the "hearts".
