Making Rum takes really good ingredients. Whatever your raw material - molasses, grains, malt etc - you will need a very high quality yeast to produce the best possible Rum wash (for distilling into Rum, where legal of course). If making Rum you can't do better than Alcotec Distiller strain yeast optimized for Rum. The Alcotec Single distiller strain Rum Yeast contains a yeast strain we choose for its ability to retain some of the original qualities of the wash. This is important in Rum production as the last thing you want is a turbo yeast of the "Pure" type which would leave nothing of the Rum taste left. It is of course important to get the right strain so we retain and enhance the right flavors but suppress the off-flavors. Alcotec Rum Turbo Yeast contains both the yeast strain to best promote the fine flavors from your raw materials and the enzyme needed. For grain or molasses based recipes, we have added a GA (glucoamylase) enzyme which breaks down dextrins which are leftovers from the raw materials after fermentation. For grain based recipes, you also need to pre-treat the wash with Alpha Amylase Enzyme. Available in 73g sachets, suitable for 25 (5.5 US Gallons)liter fermentations.
