1st Step- Fermentation
Make the alcohol by mixing sugar and water and then adding a Still Spirits Turbo which is a mixture of yeast and yeast food (nutrients). The yeast will convert the sugar to alcohol by a process known as fermentation. We have a variety of Turbo yeasts to use that will suit your climate and conditions.
2nd Step - Distillation.
Add the fermented mixture to your still. These are sold in some countries as Water Purifiers. The alcohol is then boiled off and the first portion is separated and discarded before collecting the potable (or drinkable) alcohol.
3rd Step - Filtration.
Add water to bring the strength of your spirit down to 40% ABV. Filter the alcohol with your filter unit. This involves running the spirit through a cartridge packed with a carbon mixture that removes any unwanted tastes and smells.
Now, simply flavour and enjoy
