TY-48® is based on an active dried yeast strain with unusually high alcohol and osmotic pressure tolerances—formulated with a complete macro and micro nutrient complex optimized for pure sugar fermentations, TY-48® is able to ferment pure sugar washes up to 20 % ABV. Although designed for use with highly refined sugar substrates, TY-48® can be used with any fermentable sugar to ferment very high alcohol. Alternatively, TY-48® can be used for rapid fermentation to lower alcohol levels (e.g. 14 % ABV). Kosher Parev, Product of UK.
TY-48® contains a chemically defined nutrient complex optimized for fermentation of very high ABV alcohol bases for use in beverage applications including FMB/CMB hard sodas. TY-48® can also be used for distillation of spirit alcohol from a variety of substrates. The nutrient complex in TY-48® contains all the essential macro and micro nutrients required for healthy fermentation, including nitrogen (urea source), phosphate, magnesium, B vitamins and trace minerals.
DIRECTIONS: For 5 gallons of 14% alcohol in 48 hours add 4oz Pathfinder TY-48 to a 5 gallon 14% sugar wash. Allow to stand 20 minutes then stir it in for one minute. Leave to ferment in 20-30°C (68-86°F), optimum is 25°C (77°F). Cover with a cloth, airlocks are not recommended. Stir for one minute a couple times a day.
Commercial Application: Scale dosages for TY-48® as follows:
• 2.7 g/L (0.36 oz/US Gal) for fermentation to 14% ABV
• 5.4 g/L (0.72 oz/US Gal) for fermentation to 20% ABV.
TY-48® can tolerate liquid fermentation temperatures up to 38-40°C / 100-104°F,
but alcohol tolerance is impeded at these temperatures. For optimum performance
and quality it is recommended to ferment at 22-24°C (72-75 oF) for 20% ABV (lower
ABV fermentations up to 14 % ABV can be fermented warmer at 30-32°C (86-90°F)
if rapid fermentation is required).
Note that TY48® will generate unexpected quantities of heat during fermentation. If
fermentation liquid temperature is not controlled and exceeds the maximum tolerance
at any time the ethanol tolerance will be impeded. TY-48 is not suited for propagation or post fermentation recovery for re-use.
