we had a few chilly nights here below 8 Celsius and the UJSM wash it's currently working didnt stall, so it's pretty good I reckon.

edit: taste is fine :handgestures-thumbupleft:


UJSM? Is there anywhere on this site that lists all the bloody acronyms?

My supplier can do it for $2.70 per 500g Don't know if they deliver. Just ring and ask.

Do you guys know of any suppliers? If I was in SA I'd have access to tons of winery suppliers but I have no idea about suppliers here in NSW.


The Cooperage at Smithfield , Sydney , sells DAP

Thread revival! I've done 15.35% with Lowans as my highest so far in about 18 hours. It can go higher than this if you pitch enough. Probably 20+% . Should you? Probably not, it's slower doing one 20% than two 10% and you'll end up with a worse product. Just like it's slower doing one 10% vs two 5%. But I think 10% is a good balance between convenience and time. I wouldn't go over 10% after seeing directly the differences so many times in the end product, but it's always good to experiment for yourself! :)

I had a spare bag of alcho tec 48 hr yeast so i divided it it into 4 and added it to my wash

30 liters of water
1/4 packet of turbo yeast
5kg of sugar
3liters of molasses
5 table spoons of lowlands yeast

Just curious will this wash react differently due to having 2 strains of yeast .

Most defiantly will to some extent. But you will soon see if it was worth it ;-)

It ruined the whole wash gave me a headache while i was making cuts .I don't know how people can use this shit
(turbo yeast).So it did make the wash finish rather quick but the whole batch is crap .What can i do to rid the bad toxins with out going all out on the turbo extra's (its a con first you buy the yeast then the carbon then all the other crap they flog to get a below par spirit
Note to self never even use turbo's not even a bit mixed with tried a proven lowans :violence-smack:
