What a monster! Review by APayne

(Posted on 2/16/14)

Product Rating:

Used this in a single malt mash and it ate ALL the sugars. Brought me up to well over 18% ABV. It was sitting in my kegerator for about 2 months (sealed) before I used it. Sprinkled a couple teaspoons into the mash and had serious fermentation in about 12 hours. I would be sure to use a blowoff tube! No crazy off flavors or anything. I would recommend having this on hand for fun experiments or really high ABV beers if you have a stalled fermentation.

It lives up to it's reputation Review by OD

Product Rating:

This yeast is very fast acting and has great alcohol tolerance. Way beyond anything in the home brew realm. Be prepared for a blowoff.
It does one thing, and does it well - make alcohol from fermentables.

It doesn't flocculate well, and don't expect a good beer from it.
And don't use it for a stuck fermentation because it will attenuate far more than you will like, with not the best flavor.

This yeast loves corn mash Review by Chris

Product Rating:

I have first hand experience with it going through corn mash like wildfire. This is way way stronger yeast than brewing yeast. I got to 23% alcohol after 2 weeks.
It wont taste so good so you have to process it. I've slowly been using the pound, I just keep it dry and cold and take what I need when I need it.

strong yeast Review by tony

This distillers yeast definitely lives up to its name- a tiny pinch in a 1 gallon container turns the mash into a bubbling mass in no time at all and yields a surprisingly strong good tasting result. I highly recommend it!!

The real deal Review by Pete

Product Rating:

The ideal yeast for making high alcohol beer. I use cheap dry yeast to get the alcohol as high as it can go. Then I add this super yeast and it immediately starts refermenting and gives more alcohol. Make sure you have plenty of head space in your fermentor, else it will blow out.

Agressive yeast Review by Tricia

Product Rating:

This yeast seems to work quite well. It is very fast acting and aggressive. It blew the airlock off the second batch I made with it.

Powerful yeast Review by Sanjay

(Posted on 4/29/13)

Product Rating:

It starts very fast - in an hour, and you will need a blow off hose.
Its very active while fermenting.
It reaches a low final gravity.
I reached 20% in two weeks.
This is the most powerful yeast I've used.
