Pure turbo yeast
We developed Vodka Star as an ultimate “Pure” turbo and the initial idea was to sacrifice everything for purity. We made it slower and we picked the best yeast strains for this purpose. We still use a normal wine yeast (saccharomyces cerivisae) as this strain is the best for alcohol production, whether pure or fast.
As a side effect of the slower fermentation, it turned out that this recipe was actually very temperature tolerant, more than we had initially expected.
Making fruit based alcohol
We constructed the recipe for pure sugar solutions but we have also optimised it for fruit fermentations. This turbo yeast has become popular among distillers of plum and apple spirits or any other fruit based schnapps.
