Brewing case study:
Filtration benefits far exceed enzyme cost

Case study

Challenge: A better wort and beer filtration process was needed at this regional brewer. For years, it had used a “traditional” beta-glucanase in its process.  

Solution: Using Ultraflo® Max in the mash filter at 200 ppm sped up the filtration process by approximately 30%. What’s more, the brewer reduced its annual use of filtration aids by 40%. Although Ultraflo® Max cost more per kg than the brewer’s previous enzyme solution, the benefits far exceeded the expense.

Enzymes help overcome equipment limitation

Challenge: An international brewer wanted to implement a known recipe into another of its breweries. But the “new” brewery did not have a cereal cooker.

Existing setup yields more brewing capacity and saves energy

Challenge: A regional brewer wanted to boost brewing capacity without investing in more fermenters. Could they reduce fermentation times, without compromising on beer quality? 

Enzymes ensure predictable, stable filtration

Challenge: For years, this international brewer had used the same product for hemicellulose breakdown in its recipes, which go from 10-40% barley.
