Making alcohol in 48 hours is simple with the Alcotec 48, it is tolerant to high temperatures and minor mistakes. It also works up to 20% alcohol!
Alcohol in 48 hours - or 5 days?
The Alcotec 48 turbo yeast is a "dual recipe" yeast. You can choose wheter to produce moderate alcohol (14%) in 48 hours, or high alcohol (20%) in 5 days.
Two turbo yeast recipes
You can choose whether to go for 14% (fast) or 20% (in 5 days) simply by adding different amounts of sugar. The standard dose of 6 kgs of plain sugar (or 7kg Dextrose) into 25 litres total will give you the 14% recipe. If you instead go for 8 kgs of sugar (or 9kg Dextrose) the turbo yeast will automatically go for 20% in 5 days.
This turbo yeast is considerably more tolerant to high temperatures than the Alcotec 24. The optimum is still ambient (and liquid) temperature around 25 C, but it is no disaster if the ambient temperature shoots a bit over 30 C.
*** Using Dextrose rather than plain sugar (Sucrose) will produce a wash with far less contaminants and thus a purer of alcohol
