BioHaze™ is a unique product from natural materials designed to deliver a cloudy appearance in beer. It is a free flowing microgranular powder that can be added to final beer. BioHaze™ acts by binding with protein molecules in beer and forming polyphenol-protein complexes. These complexes provide beer with its stable cloudy appearance.
Application & Usage Rate
Prepare a 2-5% solution in water as described below. Recommended dose rate is 60-120 g/bbl (50-100 g/hl, or 500 to 1000 ppm), which is equal to a 2.5 – 5 litres of a 2% solution, or 1-2 litres of 5% solution (wt/vol) per hl of beer. If this solution is to be used within a day of preparation, there is no need to add preservative.
Preparation of a 2% Solution:
When preparing a solution of BioHaze™, a standard agitator is sufficient. BioHaze™ disperses easier in cold water, so it is best to use cold water, and sufficient time should be given stirring to ensure complete dissolution. Proceed as follows using standard high-speed agitator for 1000 liters of a 2.0% solution:
- Place 264 gallons (1000 liters) of cold water in tank and turn on the agitator until a good vortex is formed.
- Take 20 kg of BioHaze™ and add slowly at the vortex, ensuring no lumps are formed.
- Stir until dissolved - time will be dependent on the water temperature and the speed of agitator. The cooler the water the easier it is to disperse, however dissolution is slower at low temperatures.
To prepare a 2% solution for 10 bbl of beer, use 1 kg of BioHaze™ dissolved in 50L of cold H2O; to prepare a 2% solution for 1 bbl of beer, use 100g of BioHaze™ dissolved in 5L of cold H2O.
