Brewing case study:
Turning a ban into a boon

Find out how we helped our customer optimize their process.

Case study

Challenge: The quality of raw materials varied significantly when imports of barley were banned throughout the nation. A regional brewer experienced that both production efficiency and quality of finished beer products were affected. 

Solution: By using Novozymes brewing solutions such as Ceremix® Plus MG, the brewer was able to cope with fluctuations in raw material quality and optimize its filtration process. Total production efficiency and finished product quality also improved.  

Location: Asia-Pacific

Overcoming raw material quality variations

Challenge: A country-wide ban on barley import led to significant variation in raw material quality – which decreased production efficiency and quality of finished beer products for an international brewer.

Troubleshooting a process bottleneck

Challenge: Something was making a regional brewer’s lautering process take much longer. And the brewer couldn’t produce the amount of beer required due to the longer brewing cycle time.

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. How to overcome the equipment limitation?
