There are many processes required to convert any mixture into alcohol including fermentation and after successful fermentation alcohol is derived with the required strength. However, fermenting mash made up of water and other ingredients requires strict control over temperature and alcohol strength since these two factors can adversely affect the performance of fermenting yeast.
Fermentation of alcohol or ethanol is achieved when alcohol yeast that matches to the type of alcohol being produced is mixed with the appropriate mixture. This mixture could be water mixed with grapes in case of wine, barley or other grains in case of beer, wheat in case of whiskey, or even corn in case of bioethanol, which is now gaining widespread acceptance as a biofuel. There are several other fruits, vegetables and grains used to make various types of alcoholic beverages. However, all mixtures or mashes need to pass through the fermentation process and in stronger alcohols also need to pass through the distillation process before the final beer, wine, whiskey, or vodka can be created.
Breweries, distilleries, or even home-producers need to use matching wine yeast, vodka yeast or whisky yeast to produce high-quality alcohols and spirits. Most of the yeasts are variants of the saccharomyces cerevisiae yeast, which is the most popular yeast used in ethanol production. However, ordinary variants of this yeast cannot survive in temperatures above 27 degrees Celsius and can also die in moderately strong alcohol. Thus, a keen eye needs to be maintained on the temperature and alcohol strength levels when yeast fermentation is in progress.
On the other hand, a rugged variant of this yeast fortified with micro nutrients is also available in select online stores. This super yeast is known as turbo yeast and it can easily provide strong alcohol of 17 percent strength at 38 degrees Celsius or 14 percent strength at 40 degrees Celsius. This can provide a huge relief for alcohol producers since during fermentation alcohol strength and temperature can now allow for a higher margin of error while still producing stronger alcohol at the same time.
Turboyeast also extracts higher yields from weak mashes and this can lower the cost of production as well as reduce wastage at the same time. The distillation process too can provide for a higher yield of strong alcohol if the initial fermentation produces higher quality of base alcohol in the first place. This yeast comes in convenient bulk packing for use by commercial distilleries and small packets for home-brewers. The final alcohol itself is safer to consume since this yeast does not contain harmful bacteria or any wild yeast.
Such types of supercharged turbo yeast can solve problems related to stuck fermentation, low yields of alcohol from mashes, impure fermentation, taste or quality issues, and low conversion of sugar to alcohol, etc. Alcohol producers can save a lot of time, effort and money by shifting to hardier yeast that increases alcohol production while lowering costs at the same time.
Alcohol fermentation is one of the most important processes in the production of alcohol since this process can provide alcohol with the perfect strength, taste, acidity, and character. After successful fermentation alcohol that is derived can now please a drinker, or a car owner while also pleasing the alcohol producer at the same time.
