I never used a Turbo 24 before, I think I used a Turbo 48 once and it took a good week to 10 days to ferment all the way through. Warmer ferment temperatures work faster (but not too warm you'll kill the yeast). Read the package it will give you a temperature range that the turbo will work.
A back up plan might be to get some cheap wine. Don't water it down, keep it at 12%. Use red wine for effect so your buddy can see the distillate comes out clear.
If you have more then one fermenter, read the UJSM and DWWG recipes in the tried and true recipes forum. Maybe try one of those as a backup plan with a second fermenter.
I've never tried either, but some folks there have had success with quick ferments.

I started out with nothing, and I still have most of it left.
