Industrial Alcohol Fermentation
Distillation of industrial alcohol, which is normally not used for consumption, can be made in a two-step process. First, start an aereated fermentation and propagate up the yeast to as many yeast cells per ml as possible. Then transfer this mash to a much larger batch of mash, where it is used as yeast. This gives great savings in yeast cost.
Temperature Tolerant Turbo yeast is excellent for this application, and provides the following benefits:
* Ferments sugar, corn, molasses, barley, wheat, and similar
* High osmo tolerance, stands 28% sugar or equivalent
* High temperature tolerance, 40°C for 14% and 38°C for 17%
* High alcohol tolerance, easily ferments to 16-17%
* Faster fermentation, increased production
* Purer fermentation, 1% less fusel replaced by pure alcohol
* No wild yeast, no bacteria: you always get a good result
The fermentation in the first tank is made using Temperature Tolerant Turbo Yeast. Then it is transferred to the next fermentor with much more of the same mash.
The mash in Fermentor 2 is fed with nutrients as usual, and pH is regulated as usual.
What makes the Turbo yeast cells grow so strong is the added micro nutrients. You can also get your current yeast strain to perform better by adding our micro nutrients.
If you re use yeast the difference is even larger. By using micro nutrients in pre fermentation the yeast cells grow to be extremely strong and healthy. There fore, the yeast perform better in fermentor, giving a better fermentation that complete to dryness. On top of this, it often happen that one get 0.2-0.8% stronger mash because yeast is strong enough to ferment to lower dryness.
