Air Still Fermentation Kit

The Air Still Fermentation Kit contains the base ingredients required to make an 8 L wash for distilling a neutral spirit with the Still Spirits Air Still or Air Still Pro - just add sugar and water.

1 x sachet Pure Turbo Yeast Nutrient (78g)
1 x sachet Turbo Clear (65g)
1 x sachet Turbo Carbon (54g)
1 x sachet Pure Turbo Yeast (10g)

1. Make sure the tap is securely fitted to the Air Still Fermenter. Clean and sanitise your fermenter thoroughly. We recommend always using a new carbon cartridge for each fermentation, this is situated in the lid of your Air Still Fermenter and helps remove any fermentation odours.
2. Add 7.5 L (2.0 US Gal) of water to your fermenter at 30°C (86°F).
3. Add 2.4 kg (5.3 lb) dextrose to the water and stir until dissolved.
4. Add Turbo Yeast and Nutrient sachets.
5. Gently massage the Turbo Carbon sachet and then add to the mix. Stir well.
6. Sit the fermenter at room temperature - approx. 18-24°C (64-75°F) for 7 days or until wash has stopped bubbling.
7. To confirm fermentation is complete test the wash with a hydrometer. The wash has completed fermentation when the Specific Gravity (SG) reading is at or below 990 and has been stable for 2 consecutive days.
8. Now clear your wash. First, stir vigorously to remove all gases. Once degassed, add Turbo Clear Part A. Stir well then stand for 1 hour.
9. Add Turbo Clear Part B whilst stirring. Stop stirring as soon as all of Part B has been added. You must stir very gently, otherwise you will disrupt the clearing process. Stand for 24 hours then carefully remove clear wash for distilling.
10. You will end up with approximately 8 L (2.1 US Gal) of purified wash ready for distilling.
