Amylase Enzyme

What it does :

Amylase enzyme is used with an enzyme-poor mash or when making high-gravity, all-grain beers that may need help sustaining an active fermentation.

What it is:

This is an enzyme that naturally occurs in grains.

How it works:

Amylase enzyme aids the conversion of starches to sugars and results in a finished beer that is light, dry, with reduced chill haze.

Mechanism:

This enzyme breaks down the starches in malt, barley, and adjunct grains into soluble dextrins and fermentable sugars.

Dosage:

Add 1 teaspoon per 5 gallons. Add to the primary fermenter.
