Max beer flow with new brewing enzyme

Max beer flow with new brewing enzyme

DuPont LAMINEX MaxFlow 4G offers enhanced mash separation, efficient beer filtration and consistent processing regardless of raw material quality.

The new DuPont™ LAMINEX® MaxFlow 4G brewing enzyme can maximize your beer flow. Using the latest in enzyme technology, the brand new enzyme offers enhanced mash separation, efficient beer filtration and consistent processing regardless of raw material quality.

For the large-scale brewer, it’s all about keeping cost under control whilst ensuring a high and consistent throughput. Modern brewing enzymes can help provide solutions to many of the inherent challenges in beer brewing today—from faster processing and limiting CAPEX to reducing environmental impact by saving energy.

Easier flow
Utilizing a special combination of β-glucanase and xylanase, LAMINEX MaxFlow 4G is developed with a particular focus on beer filtration and the suitability for use with all conventional types of separation equipment used in modern breweries. Test runs have shown that LAMINEX MaxFlow 4G is very efficient in reducing high-molecular weight β-glucan in all types of wort, making mash separation and beer filtration much easier and faster due to the reduction in wort viscosity.

Anne Dorte Andersen, global product manager for Brewing Enzymes explains: “If you aim at a production level of several hundreds of thousands of hectoliters of beer, what you 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”. 

No risk of off-flavors
Brewers care about one thing above all: the overall quality of the beer they brew. But there are many challenges to face along the way, one of which is to avoid any risk of off-flavor formation when applying brewing enzymes. Test runs have shown that LAMINEX MaxFlow 4G can minimize the risk of off-flavor in the finished beer compared to other filtration enzymes on the market. The level of ferulic acid is markedly lower when the brewers apply LAMINEX MaxFlow 4G as their brewing enzyme of choice. 


Sustainability at the core…

Better beer filtration and the reduced risk of filter cake collapse also will mean that E.g. cleaning operations need to take place much less frequently, allowing brewers to reduce the number of time-consuming and costly production stops. The result: a much more consistent production flow and a better economy – with a lower CO2 footprint.
