Alcotec 48 Vodka Yeast is probably the best selling turbo in the world. It is based around a "pure" yeast strain which is a temperature tolerant, high alcohol distillers strain. With the unique precisely composed nutrition, containing the nitrogen source, pH regulator, trace minerals, vitamins and an antifoaming agent, it is the perfect yeast compound for creating a high alcohol wash. It has a "dual" use, you can either use it for 20% (21% in special circumstances) alcohol in 5-6 days, or 14% in 48 hours (hence the name). The alcohol level is simply determined by the amount of sugar you add at start. Alcotec 48 includes mineral absorbents for ultra purity.
  • Method of use:  Add 15L (4 US Gal) of lukewarm (25°C, 77°F) water to your fermenter, than add sugar (see table) and mix well. Top up with water to 25L (6.6 US Gal) total adjusting temperature of liquid (see table). For fermentation time and alcohol, see table. Add contents of this sachet and mix. Note: To reach 21% alcohol you must keep liquid temperature constant between 18-24°C (64-75°F) which can not be done without cooling equipment. Ingredients: Yeast, nutrient, vitamins and trace minerals.

I spent time inventing a way of keeping the cupboard in which I fermented the mash warm. Not necessary! The fermentation is so strong that it generates its own heat. Very pleased with it.

Really does work quickly. You can ferment strong beer in just a few days but be careful that you leave more than the usual space above the beer in your fermenting bin as it froths like mad and will spill out if you don’t. No difference in taste noticed once beer was ready to drink compared to regular yeast.

25 Ltr brewed successfully with this yeast. 48 hours to brew might be technically possible if you want to get drunk on a cloudy brew. But, if you want all sugar to fully ferment and also clear the yeast without using finings to clear it, you are looking at weeks to brew it, not days.

Brilliant stuff. Stronger than any yeast I've used before - and with less of that "yeasty" taste. So I tend to use it for ciders and meads. Managed to make 5L of STRONG mead with this stuff. Think I used about 10g and it was horrifically strong after 2 weeks. Probably ought to have filtered it out.
