I think this should have a better title
as it is an important recipe for neutral ferments

maybe alcotec neutral alternative

also by using a champagne or port yeast you can push for high ABV

by starting with a SG of around 1.090 so not to stress the yeast
then sugar feed when you get to 1.010 add some sugar
bring the SG up to 1.020-1.030
repeat until the yeast will not ferment any more

By pushing for high abv I think you lose quality I generall stick to 10-12% washes.

agreed, the yeast will start to generate some unwanted esters
and 10-12% is a good place to be....

but if you want a high ABV 18-22% without discussing another method
then you really have no choice....
all you can do is gently gently push and try to keep the yeast happy(ish)

but alcotec is defiantly not the way to go !
alcotec yeast was developed for making fule not drinks
it contains many chemicals to feed the yeast and force them
that is why you need to clean with carbon

What is fule? Do you mean Fuel? And if so, even at 20% it's not going to ignite so can't be used as any type of fuel..

Might give it a go..

fuel yes....

most fuel will involve some kind of refinement !!!
the refinement of turbos would probably invoke duty and licensing


turbo yeast is fast and dirty...
the yeast pack is full of chemicals and probably steroids
who knows what that pack really contains !!!

some people drink methylated spirit
not what it was designed for but people do it
same kind of thing with the turbos
they were never intended to be consumed

I never needed to clean my wines with carbon before consumption
and never will

I stand down from my soap box....

lol soapbox

but if you look at the Wikipedia

http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soapbox

The term originates from the days when speakers would elevate themselves by standing on a wooden crate originally used for shipment of soap or other dry goods from a manufacturer to a retail store.


I guess you would need to be pretty old to have seen a wooden crate for shipping soap :rofl:
