Glucoamylase 400 is a food grade enzyme capable of hydrolyzing both the alpha 1,6 and alpha 1,4 glucosidic bonds releasing single glucose units.
abv Glucoamylase 400 is a food grade Amyloglucosidase enzyme derived from a selected strain of Aspergillus Niger. It is an exoglucosidase, capable of hydrolyzing both the alpha 1,6 and alpha 1,4 glucosidic bonds releasing single glucose units.
3g Sachet suitable for 5gal/23L home brew
1L Bottle suitable for Probrewers
Maximises the conversion of starch containing substrates to fermentable sugars while minimising residual carbohydrates
Provides a high degree of attenuation
Glucoamylase is used to further break down malt sugars for a drier, lower carb beer.
This enzyme may extend fermentation time so ensure the specific gravity is stable for 2 days before bottling.
Brewing Style Usage:
Low Carb Dry Lager
Dosage Guidance & Application:
Add a 3g sachet to up to 23L (6US Gal) of wort at the same time as yeast.
A typical dosage of:
0.5 – 1 kg/t of grist added in the brew house.
3 – 5 g/hl wort added during fermentation.
abv Glucoamylase 400 can be used to produce low calorie beers. In this application it can be added directly to the mash vessel at the mashing-in stage. Alternatively, it can be added to cooled wort after yeast pitching.
abv Glucoamylase 400 can be used between pH 3.5 and pH 5.0 (the optimum being pH 4.0-4.4) and a temperature between 20-65C. Total inactivation is obtained by heating at 95C for 10 minutes or at 100C for 3 minutes. Typical beer pasteurisation temperatures will not totally inactivate abv Glucoamylase 400.
Dextrose, enzyme (glucoamylase).
Made in UK from imported Ingredients.
Packaging & Storage
abv Glucoamylase 400 is available in 1 Litre containers and should be stored in a dry cool area and protected from exposure to direct sunlight. abv Glucoamylase 400 is stable for 6 months when the storage temperature does not exceed 20C. If stored at 5C the product will maintain the declared activity for 12 months.

Doesn't seem to work
Review by Paul H. on 1 Oct 2019review stating Doesn't seem to work
I have now tried this stuff 3 times, both in the wash at 60°C and when pitching yeast. Has had very little effect in reducing my FG. Maybe I got a bad batch, but it doesn't seem to have worked for me...

Hey Paul, sorry to hear you have not had any success with your use of these enzymes. Recommended usage to add a 3g sachet to up to 23L (6US Gal) of wort at the same time as yeast. Total inactivation is obtained by heating at 95C for 10 minutes or at 100C for 3 minutes.
