May the yeast be with you.
Great choice. If you’re wondering why you’re not getting the abv count you’re looking for, yeast tolerance may be the reason. This yeast is rated up to 20%, though, I’ve had problems reaching that point. Still, it works much faster than standard wine or champagne yeast. Cutting fermentation time in half. Better do gravity tests along with.

Turbo yeast
It's ok. I usually use DADYS turbo yeast though. I just have to use more of this.

Always Energetic, Taste Inconsistent
Every time i add this to a wort, i put a little sample of the wort into a cup and add the yeast. It never takes more than a few minutes to "wake up," and it always adds a kick to any brew. When mixed with a kit's yeast, it has never overpowered the kit: just adds a little kick, no appreciable taste (good or bad). When flying solo, i have not determined if its taste is good or bad: some of the brews have been fine-to-excellent, some have been just average. Never anything bad enough to throw out, but unsure what makes this yeast taste good in a batch, and what makes it less desirable.

i thought i could....
The Yeast worked well. I was not prepared for the amount. I used a small amount to ferment some blackberries. I guess without a still which I cant have, the product was a bad purchase. but glad I did

distiller's yeast
good price for a lb, but very slow, after a month it still hasn't fermented all the sugar, even being stirred, or agitated daily, and all i used was 15lbs of sugar in 5 gals of water, not fast or efficient enough for a distiller!

How much of yeast i shuld used on 6 gall of mashed?
A shopper on Dec 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: one and a half table spoon if your mash is at the proper temp. range and your bill has started its conversion to starch
whats the fermentation temp for this yeast? Will it survive in a garage in the summer while fermenting?
A shopper on Jul 9, 2017
BEST ANSWER: yes, 77 degrees is ideal although a wide range will work
How long does it remain active in dry form (shelf life)?
A shopper on Jan 27, 2017
BEST ANSWER: When I receive my 1 pound package of distillers yeast i put it in the refrigerator on the bottom shelf. I take out what I need when i need it. If i have kept it in the frig 1 month, i take it out a day earlier. 2 months - 2 days, 3 months -:3days and so on. I have kept it out as long as 6 days.
