ULTRA-FERM is a liquid amyloglucosidase (highly concentrated) from selected classical strain of Aspergillus niger.
Spec Sheet: on Ultra Ferm
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 fermenter, the recommended application dosage is 5ml for 5 gallons. Ultra-Ferm optimal pH is between 3.5 and 5.5. Temperature should not exceed 140°F(60°C). Amyloglucosidase activity is completely destroyed when the wort is held at 185°F(85°C) for 10 minutes.Size:
Package includes five 5ml vials.Each one good for five gallons of beer.
