Rapidase® Press Pectic Enzyme Solution

Powerful pectinase for fruit beers.

SKU: BZZ7369Z

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Enzyme preparation for food use containing polygalacturonase (pectinase) derived from a selected strain of Aspergillus niger

FUNCTION

Fruits and vegetables naturally contain pectin. Pectin is a source of haze in Fruit Beer, and it can form a gel in the presence of alcohol causing beer filtration issues.

An effective solution for this issue is Rapidase® Press, which is a classical pectinase containing a variety of enzyme activities required for smooth Fruit Beer brewing. These activities break down the pectin structure in fruits and vegetables, reducing viscosity and pectin haze, and contributing for a better filtration performance.

APPLICATION AND RECOMMENDED DOSE RATES

Rapidase® Press is easy to use. It is recommended to use when:

  • the fruit or vegetable is added to the mash; add the enzyme in the fruit or vegetable storage tank.
  • the fruit or vegetable is added at any point after the wort filter; add the enzyme to cooled wort at the beginning of fermentation.
