4.9 / 5.015 Reviewsready in 5 daysI 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".April 17, 2012great yeastWorked better than advertised.

Never had a problem using this yeast and have made several batches with it.January 25, 2013It works as promisedThis 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.March 8, 2013
