Ambient temperature doesn't make any difference to the taste -- this is
just a plain sugar wash, after all. Since this will be pure ethanol for
later flavouring, wouldn't you carbon polish it as well?

i use "black label" from G. Strand site. it works in 5 days max. the way i can tell is when bubbles stop coming out. it is pretty obvious. i estimate the wash having 12% or 14% because i can really taste the alcohol in it. the disadvantage is that it gives off a slight fruitty flavor. i mix it with juices and it does not matter anymore.
P.S. i can not do anything to make yeast to digest sugars faster ( some people try playing classical music to it and swear that it helps!)
I've noticed in the polls a few people are able to get their 7 day
turbo yeast to do it's business in 5 to 7 days. Most of us are
around 12 to 14 days or more. Those that are doing it
quick....what's the secret?
