Turbo Rum Yeast will make up to 6.5 U.S. Gallons. Rum Turbo will make up to 12% alcohol by volume.

Instructions: Pour 21L (5.5 Gallons) of warm water (40 Degrees Celsius/104 Fahrenheit) into a plastic fermenter. Add 2.3 kg (5 lb) of table sugar and 4kg (9lb) of fancy molasses into water. Mix well until sugar and molasses is completely dissolved. Top up the fermenter to the 25L (6.5 Gallon) mark. Add yeast and stir well for one minute. Do not seal the fermenter airtight as the resulting Co2 will need to escape. Leave to ferment between 25-35 Degrees Celsius/ 77-95 Fahrenheit until fermentation ceases (about 3 days). Optimum temperature is 30C (86F) 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 60 Degrees Fahrenheit or lower will cause your yeast to become dormant as well

Instructions will also be labeled on bag of yeast

 Don’t forget to get your 2-Stage Clearing Agent

 If you are in a cold climate, you may be interested in a Brew Belt to keep your wash warm.

    Beautiful ferment. I like to keep my fermenting on the cool side so I gave it a few extra days. Performed great I added no additional nutrients and it produced a delicious rum.

    Yeast was very fast. 15% in 3 days and the weather was cool. No bad after taste,just clear and tasty.

  5. Rated 5 out of 5


    24 lbs dark brown sugar to 13 gallons of rain or well water and one packet of yeast yields about 8 – 1.75 liters of 80 proof in about 8 days. It produces a light flavored rum, fairly clean for about a dollar a quart. No complaints
