Make sure all your equipment is cleaned and sterilised before you start.

Put 21 litres of water at 30°C into your fermenting container. For a 14% ABV and 48 hour fermentation add 6 kilos of granulated sugar (7 kilos of brewing sugar/glucose).

For an 18% ABV and 5 day fermentation add 8 kilos of sugar (or 9 kilos of brewing sugar/glucose). Mix well and make sure all the sugar is dissolved (total volume will increase to 25 litres).

Add the turbo yeast and turbo carbon, (squeeze the carbon sachet & break up the contents before opening the sachet) and stir in well.

Leave the lid loosely fitted on your brewing bucket for the first few days as the fermentation can be vigorous. Just using only an airlock at the start to vent is not recommended as this may result in over flow and spills through the airlock.

After the vigorous fermentation (normally 2-3 days) the lid (with airlock half-filled with water) can be fully pressed down. Ideal room temperature is between 20-30°C - the cooler the better for a good fermentation, however this will result in it taking a little longer to finish. Fermentation will take anything from 2 to 7 days depending on temperature and amount of sugar.

When the fermentation has finished (same reading on your hydrometer for 2 days of 0.990 or lower and no bubbles from the airlock).

Proceed to degas the liquid by using a spoon/paddle/degasser stick to work out the CO₂ that will have built up in the liquid during the fermentation for 2-3 minutes at a time.

This should be repeated several times over the next 12 to 24 hours. Next, add turbo clear and follow the instructions on the packet.

It is important turbo clear is used as it will remove impurities, odours, esters and yeast from the wash that have been trapped by the activated carbon.

This will help to produce a better quality alcohol distillate. Brewing sugar/glucose will assist you in producing a much better quality wash rather than using granulated sugar.

That will in turn lead to a far superior distilled spirit. Ingredients: Yeast nutrients, dried yeast (yeast, emulsifier (E491)), bentonite, vitamins, silicon based antifoaming agent, trace minerals.
