I should have mentioned that the wash is aeriated with an
aquarium pump and a large air stone for at least an hour before I add
the turbo yeast.Also I am fermenting better with the uncle Jessie
recipe because I doubled the amount of corn that it calls for and I
am adding 10lbs. of sugar rather than 8lbs.I am keeping the wash at
around 85deg.fer. through the fermenting stage
