GLUCANYLASE is a mixture of ß-glucanases, pentosanases, proteases and a thermostable liquefying alpha-amylase working at high temperatures (90-100°C). Glucanylase has been designed to improve the wort filtration yield when protein gels, unliquefied starch, ß-glucans and/or pentosanes are involved in wort filtration problems. The thermostable liquefying alpha-amylase is ideal to liquefy small granules of starch (from rice, maïs, barley, wheat, etc.) during the boiling of « maisches » as well as during the boiling of the whole mash. GLUCANYLASE gives higher wort filtration yields, higher extract yields and brighter worts and prevents the presence of higher alpha-glucans in final beer.
- Proteases, ß-glucanases and pentosanases : 50-60°C
- alpha-amylase : 90-100°C
- Optimum pH between 5 and 6.
- To improve the wort filtration yield when protein gels, unliquefied starch, ß-glucans and/or pentosanes are involved in wort filtration problems.
- To reach higher extract yields and brighter worts.
- To liquefy quickly gelatinised starch of any origin by working at high temperature; for example to liquefy in the boiling kettle small starch granules which could have passed through the wort filtration step and which gelatinize during the wort boiling; this action of glucanylase prevents the presence of higher alpha-glucans in beer.
we invite you to read the topic “In the brewhouse” for more information.
- In the brewhouse : in the beginning of the mash or in the maishe kettle or in the boiling kettle.
- GLUCANYLASE is avalaible in liquid form in polyethylene drums of 25 liters (30 kg).
