48-Hour Turbo Yeast

48-hour turbo yeast with AG  is a Dual purpose yeast that can make. 14% ABV in 48 hours or 20% ABV in 5 days. The 48-Hour Turbo is specially formulated for a pure fermentation, and produces very little volatiles so it makes a very nice wash for distilling.

FRESH in from Sweden. The most advanced 48-hour turbo yeast in the world. Mile Hi only sells fresh turbo yeast for all you distilling needs from whiskey to vodka yeast. Other company’s sell this same 48 hour turbo yeast for about $5.00 but we buy in bulk to save you money.  We also sell the same turbo yeast in bulk to save you even more money. If buying in bulk just keep in a cool place and should give it about 1 year self life.  Also remember yeast will not just magically die off it could loss a little activity and take longer to ferment but even sitting for over a year it should be fine.

Instructions: Pour 5.5 gallons (21L) of warm water (104 Degrees Fahrenheit/40 Degrees Celsius) into your fermenter. Add 13 lbs. sugar to make 14% alc./vol. in 2 days, or 18 lbs. to make 20% alc./vol. in 5 days. Mix well until sugar is completely dissolved. Add the Turbo Yeast package contents and stir for one minute. Leave to ferment between 70-85 Degrees Fahrenheit/21-30 Degrees Celsius until fermentation ceases. Complete fermentation times are temperature dependent.

Important Notice: After your sugar is dissolved, cool to 70-80 Degrees Fahrenheit before adding your yeast. Any temperature 65 Degrees Fahrenheit or lower will cause your yeast to become dormant as well

 Instructions will also be labeled on bag of yeast.

  1. Perry C.

    Within 1/2 hour of closing the lid on the mash bucket, the fermentation lock was bubbling and hasn’t stopped yet. We’re looking for the 5-7 day s before we start to distill, and thus far it’s looking superb!

  2. comdac

    Always works well. I usually let it work for 2-3 weeks.

  3. Scott

    Works great, yield is about 20% in
    5-7 days if you follow package directions. When used with a clarifying agent it produces a good neutral spirit with no off flavors.

  4. James Whitney

    I have used this product several times and have had fantastic results I will continue to use it.

  7. the california oakie

    works really well an the shipping is fast i will continue to use it takes longer then 48 hours but i only use 1 packet of yeast for like a 20 gallon batch so i dont expect it to finish in 48 hours but in about 5 days its done an fermented everything

  8. Joe Pangborn

    Easy to use with great results. Pour it in, stir it up, and let the turbo yeast do the rest. Works great.

  13. lorie lapodaca

    I’ve used this yeast many times and always have great luck. I also use their 2-stage clearing agent and turns out a very good product. I use a column still and then filter with Mile Hi filter unit have fantastic clear, odorless, tasteless, high proof spirit that we add essence or oak chips to. I’ll use this again and again.

    Pure awesomeness in a bag!

  19. Steven Mark

    Great yeast, always works well. Only complaint is it smells a little like rotten eggs during the fermentation process. Other than that worth every penny.

  20. Warren B

    One of the best turbo yeast on the market!! Starts working in about an hour, around the three hour mark it’s blowing the water out of the air lock!!
    7-8 days it’s done, consistantly produces 20% alcohol by volume.
    My 8 gallon can with 2″ reflux tower with 110 volt 2200W heating element, two copper packing and rashing rings will produce 1-1/4 to 1-1/2 gallons of 186 proof whisky from 8 gallons of wash…..simply fantastic!!!

    Awesome yeast! This stuff performs like no other and I have tried many different kinds. No off flavors and produces 20% alcohol every time. The instructions are kind of off. just be sure to add yeast when temperature of sugar water is below 80F and above 70F and it will work great. At first you will need hot water to dissolve the sugar just make sure the temp of the sugar water is below 80F before adding yeast or the high temp will kill the yeast. Thanks Mile High for a great price on a superior yeast.

    Good stuff for sure!

    I have been using this yeast for years now with very good results. When I still off a batch using this yeast. I pour a test batch into my 250 Ml beaker then I put my hydrometer in and it usually reads 90 to 92% . That is leaving the wash to do it’s stuff for 10 days.

  27. Bruce Wilgus (verified owner)

    This stuff works great and I always get 20% yield.

  28. chae007

    I get very good results using this yeast works great every time. The longer it runs the higher your yields.

  29. Duane (verified owner)

    Excellent product – have used it for years.

  30. Mark Evenson (verified owner)

    Works great!! I use this for my sugar washes. Makes a great neutral spirit.

  31. Stephen Davidson (verified owner)

    My “go to” turbo yeast. I’ve been distilling off and on since 2013 when I got my license from the TTB. I’ve tried numerous brands of turbo yeast and none of them hold a candle to the performance this one has and none of them can even come close to the results that I get each and every time either. Just make sure that you stay between 70 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit or 21 and 27 degrees Celsius and you will get some phenomenal results. If you liquify the sugar and stay between the temperatures I listed, you will not get any extremely nasty smells and there’s no off flavors either. This is also the cleanest fermenting yeast that I’ve ever seen. Combined with the turbo clear, you will have a 20% ABV that looks clean and clear as water.
