Re: [new_distillers] Questions about my wash?
- Bakers' yeast is too slow for your purposes. Treat yourself to a packet of
Turbo yeast, add 8kg sugar, dissolve the sugar in hot tap water, then top up
you vat to 25lt. When your wash has cooled to 22 c or so, add the Turbo
yeast and a day later it will be working like crazy. Don't forget to stir
it every day. You don't need an air lock - just keep it covered! With
bakers' yeast you will get very low alcohol - with Turbo you can get up to
20%. Good luck!
