This easy to follow recipe is great for beginners and requires little equipment. Turbo yeast, water, and granulated sugar are used to create a wash of 14% ABV in just 24 hours.


  • 6.5 gallon (25L) water
  • 13lbs (6kg) white sugar
  • 7.4oz (210g) or 1 package 24 hour turbo yeast


  1. In an 8 gallon (30L) or larger fermenter, dissolve 13lbs (6kg) of granulated sugar into 2 gallons of hot water. Ensure that sugar is completely dissolved before continuing.
  2. Using ice, cold, or hot water, top up to 6.6 gallons (25L) to obtain a liquid temperature of 95F (35C). Do not add turbo yeast until liquid temperature is at or below 95F (35C).
  3. Add contents of package, stirring vigorously for 2 minutes or until contents are fully dissolved. Never re-hydrate turbo yeast in less that the full volume of liquid as it can kill the yeast.
  4. Cover fermenter with a lid and airlock.
  5. Allow to ferment at 86-100F (30-38C) for 1-2 days, or until fermentation is complete.


24 Hour turbo yeast is capable of fermenting 13lbs (6kg) of white sugar in a 6.5 gallon (25L) wash in as little as 24 hours to produce 14% ABV
