DuPont Nutrition and Health has launched a new brewing enzyme called DuPontT Laminexr MaxFlow 4G for brewers to offer improved mash separation, efficient beer filtration and consistent processing for any quality of raw material.

The new product will reduce costs and ensure a high and consistent throughput for large-scale brewers.

Modern brewing enzymes can help provide solutions to most of the challenges in beer brewing today including faster processing, limiting CAPEX, and reducing environmental impact by saving energy.

Developed specifically for beer filtration using a combination of ß-glucanase and xylanase, the new brewing enzyme is suitable for use with all conventional types of separation equipment used in modern breweries.

Sample tests have found that the new enzyme is very efficient in lowering high-molecular weight ß-glucan in all types of wort, making mash separation and beer filtration faster due to the reduction in wort viscosity.

In addition, sample tests have also found that the new enzyme can minimise the risk of off-flavour in the finished beer compared to other filtration enzymes on the market.

DuPont brewing enzymes global product manager Anne Dorte Andersen said if we aim at a production level of several hundreds of thousands of hectoliters of beer, what we really need is a solution to keep things flowing.

"You will typically make a raw beer with high gravity, and in order to be able to process it, you need to keep production flowing without too many stops. Basically, that’s what our new enzyme is doing," Dorte added.
