Black Label Turbo 14%, 10 kg
Black Label Turbo yeast in 10 X 1 kg bag.
Ferments to 14-17.5% ABV and some times 18%. Temperature tolerant, high osmo tolerant and stress tolerant yeast strain and works for neutral alcohol (vodka, alco base). It is also good at extracting flavours from fruits for making fruit brandies.
Assumed to be the second most temperature tolerant high alcohol yeast strain available.
Dosage 3.6G per liter or less (set up tests, some times 2G is enough).
Prelong shelflife up to double by storing in refridgerator. Use to stand deep freezing but no guarantee.
Black Label Turbo Yeast is a temperature tolerant turbo yeast that is suited for mash, fruit Schnapps and alco base. Dosage is maximum 3.6 gram yeast per liter (0.5 oz./gallon) fermentation, but when used for 15-15.5% alco base, dosage is often only 2.8 gram per liter (0.4 oz./gallon).
Black Label Turbo Yeast easily produce 17.5% ethanol and often 1-2% more.
