Rapidase® Press Pectic Enzyme Solution
Powerful pectinase for fruit beers.
Enzyme preparation for food use containing polygalacturonase (pectinase) derived from a selected strain of Aspergillus niger
Fruits and vegetables naturally contain pectin. Pectin is a source of haze in Fruit Beer, and it can form a gel in the presence of alcohol causing beer filtration issues.
An effective solution for this issue is Rapidase® Press, which is a classical pectinase containing a variety of enzyme activities required for smooth Fruit Beer brewing. These activities break down the pectin structure in fruits and vegetables, reducing viscosity and pectin haze, and contributing for a better filtration performance.
APPLICATION AND RECOMMENDED DOSE RATES
Rapidase® Press is easy to use. It is recommended to use when:
- the fruit or vegetable is added to the mash; add the enzyme in the fruit or vegetable storage tank.
- the fruit or vegetable is added at any point after the wort filter; add the enzyme to cooled wort at the beginning of fermentation.
