Tomato Paste Wash (or TPW) is a different sort of wash that is much cleaner than a turbo wash. Tomato paste wash has the downside of yielding less than a turbo wash but at the same time is much cheaper.
6kg sugar or 7kg dextrose
250g tomato paste
70g bakers yeast (or 15g EC-1118 yeast)
Add sugar or dextrose and tomato paste to the fermenter. Half fill the fermenter with water. Stir until the sugars have dissolved. Top up fermenter to 27L.
Sprinkle yeast on top and ferment at 25-35C
When gravity reaches .990 on your hydrometer transfer to the still and run. I make a 27L wash to ensure I definitely get 25L into the boiler.
Turbo wash is the easiest wash to make however due to the high alcohol content and the nutrient mix, the resultant alcohol can develop an off taste that many describe as akin to methylated spirits.
7kg sugar or 8kg dextrose
1 sachet of turbo yeast
Fill your fermenter with either sugar or dextrose.
Top up to 25L with water and stir until sugar or dextrose is dissolved.
Add turbo yeast and ferment at 22-35C
When gravity reaches .990 on your hydrometer transfer to the still and run
