Still Spirits Yeasts

Our Specialised yeasts produced by Still Spirits aid in a variety of things that help you in your homebrewing endeavours, Our distiller’s yeast aids in the production of specific spirits (as labelled on the packet) and when used with the turbo 500 Boiler or Grainfather Brewing System alongside either the Turbo 500 Stainless Steel Condenser or Turbo 500 Copper Condenser it makes distilling easy and the yield you produce rewarding.

Our Distiller’s enzymes are used for the fermentation of alcohol to make distilled spirits. Can also be used for maximising yield when mashing malted grains using natural, diastolic enzyme activity.

Also, take a look at our Distiller’s Nutrients, which provide genuine yeast strains to improve the distilling of your spirits and have a special formula that reduces the off-flavours you get when fermenting to ensure your spirits taste great all the time, every time!.

Finally, take a look at our turbo yeasts which are available in single packets or as part of a 3-turbo bundle, Turbo yeasts have a special formula that allows your spirits to have a higher alcohol level and with the ability to mash at higher temperatures, it allows you to obtain triple distilled quality spirits from your home in a relatively quick time.

Here is a guide on using still spirits yeast for making your own alcohol at home:

  1. Start by preparing your wash, which is a mixture of water, sugar, and any other ingredients that you want to use. The wash should have a starting gravity of around 1.080, depending on the desired alcohol content.
  2. Add the appropriate amount of yeast to the wash. Still Spirits yeast packages generally come with instructions on how much yeast to use for a specific volume of wash. Follow the instructions carefully, as using too much or too little yeast can affect the fermentation process.
  3. Seal your fermenter, and insert an airlock to allow carbon dioxide to escape while preventing oxygen and bacteria from entering the wash.
  4. Keep the fermenter at a consistent temperature between 64-78°F (18-26°C). Yeast will not ferment properly if the temperature is too low or too high.
  5. Wait for the fermentation process to complete. This can take anywhere from 3-14 days, depending on the yeast and the conditions. To know when the fermentation is complete, you can check the specific gravity with a hydrometer, it should read around 1.010-1.020 if your fermentation is complete.
  6. Once the fermentation is complete, you can transfer the wash to a still and distill it to increase the alcohol content.
  7. The distilled alcohol can then be aged or flavored, following the instructions of Still spirits essences or other flavorings of your choice.

Note: Depending on the specific yeast you are using and the alcohol you are trying to make, the process may vary a bit, so I recommend consulting the specific instructions that come with the yeast package, as well as following all relevant laws and regulations regarding distillation in your area.

It’s important to note that home distillation is illegal in some countries, and even where it is legal, there may be specific regulations and licenses required. Additionally, it is essential to use good sanitation and safety measures when working with high-proof alcohols.
