Turbo Yeast & Fermentation temps
- Hi group,
I am new to this news group and have been doing a lot of reading
about distilling. My interest started with wanting to distill water,
and still is my primary interest. Are there any suppliers in the US
that supply Turbo Yeast? If not, what/who is the least expensive
place to order it?
Many years ago I played around with winemaking and something that we
utalized back then may be of use to some of you. I have read
numerous posts about maintaining the temperature of the mash. We
have a 55 gallon aquarium, in use. The water temp is maintained at
76 degrees. I purchased 100 feet of 3/8" clear vinyl hose, and
wrapped/coiled it around the container I used for fermentation. I
then wrapped the bucket up with an old blanket, covering the tubing.
The tubing was connected to a small fountain pump in the aquarium,
which circulated the 76 degree water around my bucket and returned it
to the aquarium. This always worked great, the heater in the
aquarium would maintain the temp in both the aquarium and my
fermentation bucket. I welcome your thoughts and comments.
Thanks again for a great new group.
