Homemade Spirits & Liqueurs

Distilling your own spirits is easy, economical and best of all it is fun! Bin Inn sells an extensive range of distilling hardware including stills, brew barrels, thermometers, air locks, hydrometers, filter systems, carboys, grommets plastic hosing, spirit bottles, measuring jars and much much more. After the initial distilling hardware setup costs, you can make your own basic spirits for approximately $6 - $7 per 750ml bottle. Liqueurs are a lot of fun to make (and drink!), but they do cost a bit more to make. The first step to getting started is to visit your local Bin Inn store. Simply tell them which drinks you are interested in making and they can advise you on what hardware and accessories best meet your requirements.

Alcotec Turbo Super Yeast

The latest additions to our ever expanding brewing range are two new types of Alcotec Turbo Super Yeast. One is Alcotec 24 Hour Turbo Super Yeast and the other is Alcotec Turbo Super Yeast 6kg.

Alcotec 24 Hour Turbo Super Yeast

Turbo is the word alright! Alcotec 24 Hour Turbo Super Yeast is an extremely fast fermenting product. It will ferment out 6Kg of sugar in only 24-36 hours and 8Kg of sugar in 36-48 hours. The yield is great and over 90% can be achieved easily. From 1Kg of sugar, 1.4 litres of 40% spirit is produced. If you want your wash fermented quickly, give 24 Hour Turbo Super Yeast a go. As well as fermenting super fast, it also produces super clean vodka out of your still, ready for treatment with activated carbon and essences. IMPORTANT: Do not use an airlock (you will understand the reason for this once you have seen the fermentation!).

Alcotec Turbo Super Yeast 6Kg

The main difference between these two types of Turbo Yeast is time. Alcotec Turbo Super Yeast will take 3-4 days to ferment for a mix of 6 Kg of sugar, up to 25 litres of water and one packet of Turbo Super Yeast. It will take about 2-3 days to ferment a mix of 4.5Kg of sugar, up to 20 litres of water and one packet of Turbo Super Yeast. Turbo Super Yeast is also known as "Alcotec 6Kg". This is because it ferments 6Kgs of sugar in a 25 litre solution (in 3 days - that's the "3" in the picture on the packet). This is probably the top selling turbo yeast in the world. And now we have a new and improved formulation for even better results.
