Turbo Pure 48 1kg Pack is a temperature tolerant turbo yeast that is suited for mash and alco base, not for fruit Schnapps. Maximum dosage is 5.4 gram yeast per liter (0.7 oz./gallon). The fermentation is very clean, but at high temperatures a lot of by-products are produced. TurboPure 48 easily produce 18% ethanol by volume, but 20% with glucose if liquid temperature is kept at 20-25 °C throughout fermentation.
Instructions for 25 liter:
1. Dissolve 6-8 kg (13-17 lbs) sugar into 8 liter (2 US gallons) hot water.
Make sure the sugar has completely dissolved before continuing.
2. Top up to 25 liter (6.6 US Gallon) with cold water.
