Other Distillery and Brewing Industry Ingredients
Amyloglucosidase 15 kg sack
Amyloglucosidase breaks down unfermentable sugars into fermentable ones. The main application in the industry is with addition to a lager beer fermentation to ensure the lager is as dry as possible and that it has a light, refreshing body. It is important that Amyloglucosidase is only used where one wants both a dry final drink but also light body / weight, because complete removal of dextrins will also remove much of the weight / body from the alcoholic drink - which is absolutely the last thing one wants to do for most alcoholic drinks. Amyloglucosidase is also used for distillery mash made from corn, wheat, barley etc. Click here for more info.

Chitosan Fining, 25 liter or 1000 liter container
Chitosan is de-acetylated chitin (chitin is the material which makes up the shell of lobsters, crab and shrimp). It is excellent at removing solids debris after fermentation but may also work with a lot of clearing problems with any alcoholic product. Chitosan is always worth a try, however, set up a small sample and test before full-scale use. Add directly (never pre-mix) into the liquid to be cleared, stir gently for 20-30 seconds and let sit to clear. Allow 6 hours per meter of height of tank, for clearing. Most users then filter out solids, those who rack off tend to leave 4 times as long. Click here for more info.
