Brewery Enzymes

In beer manufacturing, barley grain is malted (germinated under controlled conditions) and kilned. This malt is extracted to give wort. The wort is cooked and treated with hops, fermented with yeast, filtered and stabilised.

In mashing, the aim is to produce maximum quantities of fermentable sugars in a liquor which is easy to filter. Key enzyme activities are Alpha Amylase, Beta Glucanase and Xylanase may also be of some importance

Beta-Glucan hydrolysis is required to enhance the rate of wort and beer filtration and to prevent the formation of Beta-Glucan hazes in the final product.

Brewers who desire raw material cost savings or use of local raw materials may source under-modified malts or increase the ratio of adjunct. The limiting factor is to ensure an adequate complex of enzymatic activities for high-quality wort.

We offer a range of blended products to ensure sufficient FAN, extract yield, filterability, and fermentability for high-quality index final beers. Cost effective adjunct and malt solutions are made with Beta Glucanase, Xylanase, Alpha Amylase and Protease.

FAQ’S

What is the process of brewing?

Brewing is a process of making beer by steeping a starch source in water and then fermenting the resulting sweet liquid with yeast.

What enzymes are used in the brewing industry?

There are three primary enzymes that are used in brewing: alpha amylase, beta glucanase enzyme, and xylanase. These enzymes convert the starches into sugars, which the yeast can then ferment.

Which enzymes are used industrially to remove beer haze?

Enzymes such as Protease and Papain can be used to prevent haze from forming in beer.

What temperature is too high for mash?

Brewers have found that a mash temperature of 149 degrees Fahrenheit results in a light and crisp beer. However, a mash temperature of 158 degrees Fahrenheit will create a beer with a more complex flavor profile. A mash temperature that is too high (170 degrees Fahrenheit or above) will create a beer that is too thick and heavy.

What is maturation in brewing?

Maturation is a process in brewing by which the beer is allowed to rest and age after primary fermentation. During maturation, yeast and other particles settle to the bottom of the vessel. During this time, the flavors of the beer will mellow and secondary fermentation will take place. This process can last for weeks or even months, and it is an important step in the brewing process.
