      Yes Turbo is really designed for ethanol-over-flavor production. Donald
      of Outterson LLC (who I wish would post here more often as he is a font
      of brewing and distilling knowledge) has recommended Red Star Dry Active
      Distiller's Yeast which I've found through a few mailorder places. He
      also has said that at least one top tequila manufacturer uses Alltech's
      Superstart yeast.

      good luck and let us know how your production goes!
