22163Re: Turbo Yeast Question? for harry
- Oct 8, 2006i also had a similar problem with some of my yeast!! harry told me the
same thing. check exp. date and batch number then take it up with
supplier. mine wasnt totaly dead but a lot less vigorous than previous
packs. i took the loss and now purchase from elese where. by was this
a alcotec brand??
harry should we all get together (if more than just the 2 of us have
had this problem) and contact the manufacturer directly??
if they were the same brand and purchased from the same spot then id
assume it was the suppliers fault and not the manufacturer, so ill
provide my source and type. if different suppliers and same
manufacturer id assume it was a manufacturer fault?? agree???
i purchased mine from mile high and it was alcoteh 48.
not trying to stir the pot, ive put it behind me. although it is
rather interesting that im not the only one who had to deal with this.
i had to let the ferment sit for 2.5 weeks before it was done. not my
usual 8 days. yes it is a turbo 48 but i always let it complete its
job and all previous were more than done by 8 days.(instructions call
for 5 days with temp. varying this time some) im at their temp
steadily but give it a few extra days to be sure!
