CLARITY FERM IS DEVELOPED USING BREWERS CLAREX BY DSM AND INTENDED FOR TWO BREWING PURPOSES
1) Eliminates the appearance of chill haze, while also increasing the shelf life of packaged beer. 2) Significantly reduces the gluten in beers brewed with barley and wheat.
Clarity Ferm is an easy-to-use enzyme that eliminates chill haze in beer and serves as an alternative for clarifying and stabilizing the appearance of beer. Additional benefits also include cost savings for breweries, enhanced efficiencies, and innovation proven to reduce gluten.
While the enzyme helps break down the sensitive (haze-active) polypeptides that create chill haze, its reaction is very specific, so you can rest assured that no other beer parameters (i.e. flavor, aroma) will be affected.
Clarity Ferm may be used in combination with all types of brewing materials. Simply add when pitching yeast, and Clarity Ferm will do its work during fermentation. Once fermentation is complete, the possibility of chill haze occurring will be eliminated and you will have a stable and clear beer.
In addition to eliminating chill haze, Clarity Ferm significantly reduces the gluten content in beers made with barley and wheat. A Clarity Ferm treated beer made from barley or wheat will typically test below 20 ppm of gluten, which is the international threshold for brewing considered "gluten free." White Labs also offers gluten testing for beers. While this test allows brewers to know the gluten level of their beers, the values may not be used on packaging labels until the FDA completes its own validation.

Magnesium Sulphate is an important mineral for its effect on mash and wort pH. It is used as a brewing salt to adjust the ion content of the wort and enhance enzyme action in the mash to promote a desired flavour profile in the beer. It is a useful addition to brewing water at the mash phase as it is highly soluble in water.
APPLICATIONS: Opti-Mash is a liquid thermostable alpha-amylase from a classical strain of Bacillus licheniformis. FUNCTION: Different adjuncts such as maize, rice, wheat, and sorghum are used in brewing. The starch of these grains can have gelatinization temperature greater than 76-78 C, the temperature at which different amylases from barley are inactivated. In addition, the milling of adjuncts and malt results in different sizes of flour and grist particles, the largest of which may not be completely solubilized below this temperature. Opti-Mash alpha-amylase ensures starch liquefaction when using adjuncts in the mash bill. Extract yield is improved and the risk of starch retrogradation is prevented.
Opti-Mash alpha-amylase can be used for starch liquefaction with all types of adjuncts that are used in the brewhouse. No pH adjustment or stabilization of enzyme with calcium ions is required, although the addition of Ca(OH)2 to obtain a pH of 6.5 will ensure maximum efficiency.
If malt is used to liquefy the starch in the cereal cooker, then also add Opti-Mash at 220-280ml per ton of adjunct. If no malt is used, with adjuncts such as maize, rice, wheat, or sorghum, Opti-Mash should be used at 300-400ml per ton of adjunct. It is recommended to dilute Opti-Mash in brewing water prior to use to facilitate mixing in the adjunct cooker. Opti-Mash must be added at the beginning of adjunct cooking. It will be inactivated during the kettle boil.

Servomyces is a natural zinc enriched single-strain brewing yeast (from the prestigious Hefebank Weihenstephan) that is used as a biological yeast nutrient. Servomyces enables any yeast strain's ability to incorporate essential nutrients into its cellular structure while providing a high concentration of zinc that is essential for healthy alcoholic fermentation. Tested in breweries around the world, it has been proven to:
•Cut down fermentation time •Increase flocculation •Greatly reduce harsh sulfur notes •Improve the health and viability of yeast. •Reduce levels of diacetyl at the end of primary fermentation •Produce faster, more complete attenuations •Increase yeast production for a better harvest •Improve the quality of the finished product
For commercial brewers, Servomyces is available in 20 packs of 10 grams or 500 gram packages. For test batched and/or homebrewers, Servomyces is available in blister packs of six capsules, each of which can be used for a 5-gallon batch (20 to 25L). Servomyces is beneficial to beer, wine, mead and cider.
Sodium Benzoate - 22.7kg bag
Sodium benzoate is the sodium salt of benzoic acid and is widely used as a food preservative, particularly in acid foods like salad dressings and soft drinks. Sodium benzoate can also be used in winemaking and Brewing to stop fermentation and prevent spoilage.
Visco-Buster is a liquid product obtained from Trichoderma reesei. This is an enzyme complex containing predominantly 1,3-1,4-glucanase activity, but also endo-xylanase and other hemicellulases.
The use of raw grain adjuncts and less-modified malts often leads to wort filtration problems after mashing and consequently to capacity and extract losses. It is well known that glucans found in the endosperm wall of grains can cause filtration problems after mashing and haze problem in finished beer. Similarly, hemicelluloses (mainly xylans and arabinoxylans) can retain wort and cause extract loss due to its very high liquid retention ability in the grain bed. Hemicellulose can also lead to haze problems in the finished beer, especially during high gravity brewing.
Visco-Buster enzymes decrease quickly the mash’s viscosity and improve filterability of the wort. This latter is less retained in spent grains, yield and extract are improved. More efficient filtration results in an increased efficiency of brewhouse throughput, particularly when poorly modified malts or adjuncts are used, but standard malts can also benefit. Filtration of the finished beer is its colloidal stability are consequently improved.
Visco-Buster can be used will all types of malts and adjuncts and is particularly recommended when poorly modified malt makes up a large proportion of the mash bill. Visco-Buster dosage usually required is 100mls per ton of malt or raw material making up the mash bill. Visco-Buster has high activity between 40°C and 70°C. It should be added at the beginning of mashing-in so that enzymes can work along the mashing process.

ULTRA-FERM is a liquid amyloglucosidase (highly concentrated) from selected classical strain ofAspergillus niger.
1) To reduce saccharification times. 2) To saccharify unmalted cereal brews. 3) To increase attenuation.
FUNCTION IN BEER PRODUCTION:
Brewers often want to produce light beers or dietetic beers. In these cases the brewer wants a controlled or complete hydrolysis of starch and dextrins to fermentable glucose. Traditional brewing methods permit only 75 to 80% hydrolysis of starch present in the grain raw material. Ultra-Ferm amyloglucosidase permits total hydrolysis of dextrins to fermentable glucose, from all types of starch.
In the brewhouse, the recommended application dosage of Ultra-Ferm is 0.8 to 3.2L per ton of starch. It can be added at the beginning of the mash-in. Ultra-Ferm optimal pH is between 3.5 and 5.5. Temperature should note exceed 60°C. Amyloglucosidase activity is completely destroyed when the wort is held at 85°C for 10 minutes.
