1. A process for synthesizing an aluminum-silicon-germanium zeolite comprising:
a) forming a reaction mixture by combining a silica source, a germanium source, an aluminum source, a structure directing agent and water to form a gel;
b) mixing the reaction mixture;
c) introducing an acid which does not contain fluorine;
d) heating the reaction mixture to form zeolite crystals;
e) cooling the reaction mixture;
f) separating the zeolite crystals from the gel;
g) washing the zeolite crystals;
h) drying the zeolite crystals; and
i) calcining the zeolite crystals
wherein the aluminum-silicon-germanium zeolite is synthesized without a fluoride compound.
