I have only yesterday put down 10Kg of sugar made up to 50 litres using one turbo classic pack and around 80g of bakers yeast. Turbo washes ferment in a couple of days so I am not waiting around for product when I want to put a bit of wash through a still when playing around and experimenting. It has been taking around 10 days for me to get a TPW fermented using bakers yeast from Coles, and I want a wash I can use in the meantime.

In doing what I am doing at the moment I am also wanting to verify for myself whether double the water, a lower ratio of sugar to water, the addition of a bit of bakers yeast and lower fermentation temperature will give a better flavor than the normal recipe turbo wash. You want to see this stuff bubbling. It is just about continuously displacing the water and blowing gas out the air lock.

All good APR but you you stiill cant polish a turd no matter what ya use. :handgestures-thumbupleft:

Incorrect... :))

...but I get your point :)

i always though the carbon filters were exactly an attempt to polish a turd-bo.
apparently it does improve the product somewhat

The carbon might help but the plastic bucket it's attached to that you put your spirit in wouldn't :handgestures-thumbdown:
