10814Re: My First Sugar Wash/and other questions
- Apr 2, 2004Yes I think we may be talking about the same turbo. Liquor quick I
think was the brand. Anyway, it did not settle even after an ample
fermentation time (5 days) and I did not use a wine filter to filter
the yeast. The "off" flavor has been almost eliminated but it has
taken several runs as I said. I don't know how other clearing agents
will work, but If I was going to use a turbo again I would filter the
wash. I did use some charcoal but as per other strings in the group
I have not built a very good filter yet. I am hoping the slight
residual flavor/odor will be masked by essences and aging in oak.
Honestly I don't know if I would advocate turbo yeast. As I have
gained a bit more confidence in the distilling process producing a
totally neuteral spirit seems somewhat less attractive than
expirementing with whisky, schnapps, and other flavored spirits.
This is also why I have become more content with my stove top pot
