To achieve a faster fermentation Turbo yeast is used. It is available in a number of brands, e.g., Turbojast, Alcotech, Turbo 3 and Norsk Turbo. Fermentation will be completed in 2-3 days, depending on how much sugar is used and the temperature, giving an alcohol content of 11-14%. To obtain a stronger mash Gold Turbo 8 kg is one of the best. It does what is claimed of it and gives a mash containing 16% alcohol, in optimum cases 18%. This means 50% more spirit from the apparatus with the same quantity of mash.
