GLOBAL FLAVORS customer and Distillers Club Member Paul MacKenzie has completed his first test run using our new Global Express Fast & Clean Distillers Yeast.
“I’ve completed the first trial of the new yeast – and I can honestly say wow! It is an easy 9/10!” said Peter.
His method used 25 litres of water and 6 kilograms of dextrose at an average fermenting temperature of 25°C.
“It took five days to ferment out, taking nearly 24 hours to really start.
“I ferment in the garage and the outside daytime temperatures ranged between 20°C and 46°C, so it made a little bit harder to get consistent consistency,” Peter said.
“I used Kwick Klear which is my preferred clearing agent, it is a gelatine-based product designed for the wine industry from England, and is a very cheap and effective product.
“I distilled 2.8 litres at 96%, very neutral flavours, towards the beginning of the tails a very pleasant mild nutty flavour came through which I really liked.
Peter continued that the product is already smooth before filtering.
“It’s is currently going through my large tubular carbon filter which will take 24 hours, I would expect it to be even smoother.
“It has none of horrible flavours of turbo-style yeasts and I can honestly recommend it, the way I prepared it.”

Until next time… Happy Distilling!
