Pure Vodka fermentation
Alcotec Vodka Turbo Yeast is a member of the new Alcotec "distillers strain" yeast range and based on a very pure fermenting yeast strain and contains GA (gluco amylase) enzyme that is required to break down dextrins left over when you use grains, or rice or other stach containing fermentables. If you use this for pure sugar/water washes, it will work just as well but you don't actually use the enzyme. This turbo is similar to Alcotec VodkaStar but the main difference is that this Alcotec Vodka Turbo is a bit faster and contains enzyme. Note that for grain based recipes, you will also need another enzyme treatment before fermentation to break down starch components. That is best done with Alcotec α-Amylase Enzyme. Alcotec Vodka Turbo comes in 73g sachets for 25L fermentation, or in 25kg sacks for the alcohol industry. This product is currently not available for the Australian and NZ markets but we are working on it.
