Turbo Clear is used to remove over 90% of the yeast cells, solids and other compounds from the wash.
If Turbo Clear is not used then yeast cells will break open during the boiling process releasing off flavours and smells in your distillate. Impurities will also be absorbed by fermentation clays and carbons will be released back into the distillate.
For the very best alcohol quality, make sure you use Turbo Clear in every wash and then rack before distillation.
Turbo Clear ingredients:
Water, silica solution, acid (malic acid), chitosan (crustaceans), preservative (sodium metabisulphite).
