About Endozym Glucacel UHT
Endozym Glucacel UHT is a preparation based on thermo-stable betaglucanase, ideal for the utilization during distilling & beer processing.
The enzymatic agent, standardized to contain a minimum of 250 BGLU/g, possesses pentosanasic, cellulasic, xylanasic and arabinasic activities and facilitates the reduction processes of wort viscosity, strengthening the natural enzymatic betaglucanasic component naturally present in barley.
Endozym Glucacel UHT is successfully utilized in the brewhouse during the mashing-in stage. All production trials show that the formulation increases the capacity of the mash filter and the following beer filtration. The product composition enhances the secondary enzymatic activities present in Endozym Glucacel UHT, suitable to grant the filtration cycle yield and to stabilize the finished beer.
The product displays an optimal activity range between 50 and 75°C, with an optimal pH between 4,7-7,0. At the temperature of 80°C, Endozym Glucacel UHT is active for about 15 minutes, while it is totally inactivated during wort boiling. Its utilization is easy and practical at the dosage of 200 mL/100 kg of the total raw material. It can be dissolved in water, sprayed in the greenhouse or added in the maceration tank.
The optimal dosage depends on the raw material composition and the specific production parameters.Endozym Glucacel UHT is very useful when added to the ready-to-use malt, at concentrations between 10 and 20 mL/100 kg of malt, depending on the types of barley to be processed, the viscosity values one wishes to obtain and the quantity of betaglucans one wishes to reduce. On the ready-to-use malt, the addition is carried out on the vaporization ramps on the silo conveyor belt.
The utilization of Endozym Glucacel UHT enables to obtain a better extract yield with a more effective threshing depletion
