This Fermentation will be violent, do not over fill fermentation vessel and place on spill tray.


An amazing all-round superyeast for home makers of moonshine spirit. It will ferment 6 kgs of normal sugar in a 25 litre solution in 48 hours or less, even under difficult circumstances. You can think of it a bit like a moonshine kit.

Forget what the home distillation handbook says about temperature sensitive fermentations and how to make moonshine, watching the temperature, problems in the summer, you name it. Alcotec 48 works in ambient temperatures up to 30 C (86 F). It will produce very clean alcohol but you should still use activated carbon filtration for optimum purification before mixing with essences.

Making Moonshine - Instructions:
25 litres of 20% alcohol in 5 days

Alcotec Turbo Pure 48 is a "dual function" turboyeast. You can choose whether to ferment 14% alcohol fast or 20% in 5 days, simply by changing the amount of sugar added. For 20% in 5 days just increase from 6 to 8 kgs of sugar in the recipe below.

25 litres of 14% alcohol in 48 hours

Pour 21 litres of 40 C (104 F) water into your fermenter. Add 6 kgs of sugar and mix well until completely dissolved. Then add 1 sachet of Alcotec 48 and stir for one minute. Leave to ferment in 20-30 C (68-86 F), optimum is 25 C (77 F).

 It can be illegal to brew alcohol please check the law.

For flavouring of your spirit we recommend using presitege essences.
