An Alcometer (as apposed to a Wash, Wine & Beer Hydrometer) is used to test the strength of your spirit. Additives such as flavouring and Liquid Glucose will distort the hydrometer readings. Alcometers should only be used to test spirit before any additives such as flavouring or liquid glucose are mixed. The Alcometer is floated in the spirit to measure the alcohol content. As alcohol is thinner than water, the higher in strength the alcohol is, the further down the hydrometer floats. The reading is taken where the surface of the spirit cuts the scale of the hydrometer.

STAR VODKA YEAST-
Alcotec Vodka Star turbo yeast contains a high purity yeast strain, chosen for its ability to create very clean and neutral alcohol from a sugar/water wash. It will ferment to 14% in 5-6 days. Note that for making vodka from grains, you also need enzymes to break down starch components into fermentable sugars. If you use grains, rice or similar in the recipe – use Alcotec Vodka Turbo with GA instead and you may need to pre-treat the wash with Alpha Amylase enzyme. Temperature range is 20-25°C for maximum purity but it works up to 35 °C
Alcotec Rum Turbo Yeast contains both the yeast strain to best promote the fine flavours from your raw materials and the enzyme needed. For grain or molasses based recipes, we have added a GA (glucoamylase) enzyme which breaks down dextrins which are leftovers from the raw materials after fermentation. For grain based recipes, you also need to pre-treat the wash with Alcotec Alpha Amylase Enzyme. Available in 73g sachets (108g for Australia/NZ)
Alcotec Single Strain Whisky Yeast – Makes 25L of Grain Mash (Whiskey Wash)
High Quality Yeast strain optimised for Whisky
12% in 3-6 days depending on temperature and raw materials.
Net weight 23g
Making whisky takes some really good ingredients.
Whatever your raw material – molasses, grains, malt etc – you will need a very high quality yeast to produce the best possible Whisky wash (for distilling into Whisky, where legal of course).
Alcotec Yeast strain optimised for Whisky
The Alcotec Single Strain Whisky Yeast contains a yeast strain chosen for its ability to retain some of the original qualities of the wash.
This is important in Whisky production as the last thing you want is a turbo yeast of the “Pure” type which would leave nothing of the Whisky taste left.
It is of course important to get the right strain so we retain and enhance the right flavours but suppress the off-flavours.
This yeast is obviously NOT for use with a basic sugar/water mix as there would be nothing to retain, it’s for fermentations of grains, molasses etc for distilling into Whisky.
ALCOTEC 48 – will produce 25 litres of wash at approx 18% alc/vol in 5 to 7 days in summer and 7 to 10 days in winter. It is suitable for hot climates as it will ferment at temperatures up to 40°c. It is suitable for use in fermenters smaller than 30 litre as it does not produce as much froth as Turbo Express and Alcotec 24.
Mangrove Jacks Water Flow Regulator to control fluctuations in water flow $95.00
Still Spirits Turbo Clear –
Transform your alcohol quality! Turbo Clear is added directly into your turbo wash and within 24 hours separates over 95% of the yeast cells, solids and other compounds from the wash so that you can siphon out your clear wash, leaving the sediment behind.
If Turbo Clear is not used and yeast cells are added to your boiler, the cells will break open during the boiling process releasing off-flavours, smells, impurities absorbed by fermentation, clays and carbons back into the distillate. For the very best alcohol QUALITY use Turbo clear in every wash and rack carefully before distillation.
Super fast finings
Alcotec 24 Turbo Klar is a two-component fining agent for wine or turbo yeast wash. It will normally clear anything in 24 hours including very difficult turbo yeast washes such as those from Alcotec 24/48. The consumer pack comes in a dual sachet with total weight of 135g which will clear 25L. Alcotec 24/48
