Quality, Cost Effective Brewing Enzymes

Sharpen your competitive edge with cost-effective production, improved throughout, and relieved processing bottlenecks. Brewing enzymes enable you to achieve more consistent mashing, improve filtration, and optimize the use of variable raw materials.

Brewing enzymes increase starch liquefaction and saccharification, which in turn increase the production of fermentable sugars. The enzymes work to improve filtration, reduce the presence of viscous polysaccharides like glucans and increase free amino nitrogen production (FAN). They can also increase the production of fermentable glucose during the production of light beer and solve any issues caused by utilizing non-traditional grains like sorghum or rye.

Brewing Enzyme Advantages

  • Improved yield
  • Reduced process time
  • Lower lautering times through the lauter tun
  • Consistent and reproducible taste profile
  • Reduced diacetyl levels
  • Eliminate the need for diacetyl rest
  • Better utilization of specialty grains, for example rye or sorghum

COST EFFECTIVE, QUALITY DISTILLING Enzymes

Sharpen your competitive edge with the efficient production of alcohol, gaining more from your existing raw materials and equipment. Distilling enzymes allow you to meet your goals – from increasing operational efficiency to improving product quality and brand management.

Distilling enzymes can aid in fermentation enhancement, ensuring that the residual starches and proteins are hydrolyzed into more fermentable sugars and amino acids. DuPont enzymes can also reduce the viscosity of several raw materials used during the process, which provides savings while boosting efficiency. During the liquefaction step, a starch-containing grain is processed into alcohol, but the correct enzyme can provide benefits beyond the basic process. Lastly, in the saccharification step, enzymes degrade gelatinized starch and dextrins into fermentable sugars. DuPont enzymes convert the starch while optimizing cost and ensuring consistent quality.

Distilling Enzyme Advantages

  • Reduction in processing time
  • Higher, consistent yields
  • Ability to use different grains for the mash bill
  • Reduction in energy use
  • Reduction in processing issues, especially rye
