24 hour yeast
- First things first, Many thanks to those who replied to my query
about tap water.
I mixed 6 kilos of sugar with 20 litres of tap water, put a heater
belt on and left it to stand overnight.
The next morning at 1100hrs I added one sachet of Alcotec 24hour
yeast, Ieven followed the instructions (there's a break with
traditional) and stirred it for minute.
By the middle of the afternoon it was foaming well and stinking the
house out. The next morning at 1100hrs there was still abit of
activity, by the evening this had stopped and the sg was just under
I use a pot still and run through three times. I got just below my
normal expectations, this was my fault though as I forgot to turn on
the water to cool the condenser on the second run.Once again the
house is stinking and two of the dogs were reeling.
I have no connection with the manufacturers or the marketing people,
and I am only producing fuel for model aircraft engines.
