Brewing case study:
3 X lower dosing rate cuts costs and boosts sustainability

Discover how we helped our customer increase sustainability

Case study

Challenge: Production of a regional and international brewer’s ultra-low-carb beer used a glucoamylase that required a very high dose rate. This created unnecessarily high costs – both for large amounts of the enzyme itself, as well as for packaging and transportation. It also impacted sustainability.

Solution: With Novozymes’ advanced glucoamylase, Attenuzyme® Core, the brewer was able to decrease the dosing rate by at least three times. In addition to achieving the RDF targets for the specific beer more efficiently, the brewer could reduce the amount of packaged enzyme purchased – which reduced packaging, transport, and onsite handling. This supported the brewer’s overall sustainability targets for less waste (packaging), less energy use in brewhouse operations, and smaller CO2 footprint.

New recipe for existing product reaps big benefits

Challenge: By dramatically changing its recipe, an international brewer wanted to meet many challenges at once, such as; Reduce dependency on imported malt, Reduce energy consumption, and many more.

State-of-the-art brewing saves time, money and increases capacity and sustainability

Challenge: For liquefaction, a regional brewer was still using a complex series of temperature holds and rises and multiple additions of malt material to the cereal cooker.

Updated filtering approach gives better yield, productivity, and performance

Challenge: The “traditional” beta-glucanase a regional brewer was using was keeping its wort and beer filtration process from being as efficient as it could be.
