Still Spirits Classic 8 Turbo Yeast

Still Spirits Classic 8 Turbo Yeast


Classic is also the best selling Tubo Yeast world-wide, performing excellently under most conditions. It's fast, capable of fermenting 6kg of sugar in 36 hours. It can reach strengths of 18% ABV when 8kg of sugar is used and has excellent temperature tollerance.

Still Spirits Classic Turbo Yeast has been further improved with the inclusion of new mineral absorbents for improved distillate quality.

As with all Turbo Yeasts, Classic further benefits from being used with Turbo Carbon.


  1. Decide upon the quantity of sugar to use (see chart) — do not use more than 7kg (15lb 7oz) if the air temperature is above 25°C (77°F).
  2. Prepare water making sure you end up with 21 litres (4.6 gallons) at the correct water temperature (see chart).
  3. Add the sugar and stir until completely disolved.
  4. Add the yeast and stir well. Rest the lid loosely on the fermenter (or use an airlock).
  5. Leave to ferment – 20°C (68°F) is ideal. Do not exceed chart temperature, or fermentation will stick. If using a hydrometer; a final gravity of 990 is possible if the air temperature has been correct.

Excellent service

Never let me down. Fantastic service, extremely friendly and knowledgeable. Brilliant during lockdown ( and before). Drive from
North Nottinghamshire to Derbyshire every time rather than buy on internet, well worth it. Thanks guys.
