Brewing Application

Efficient wort separation and beer filtration

To ensure an efficient brew house process and longer beer filtration cycle, viscosity-increasing components and water-binding cell walls must be minimized. The enzymes in malt are not heat-stable and do not possess the capabilities to ensure consistent process conditions.

With BeerCo Beta Glucanase, the viscosity of wort and beer can be further reduced. The results increase brew house efficiency and extract yields, achieve a faster filtration and minimize process fluctuations.


● Consistent and high speed of wort filtration
● Consistently high utilization of beer filtration equipment
● Consistently high brew house capacity
● Possibility to eliminate production variations due to varying quality of raw materials
● High flexibility in choice of mashing temperature profile
● Possibility of using High Gravity Brewing and Very High Gravity Brewing
● Secure minimal investment in brew house and beer filtration capacity
● Higher extract yield


BeerCo Beta Glucanase is a classic multi-active β-glucanase and xylanase preparation for improved wort separation and beer filtration.

Usage and dosage

BeerCo Beta Glucanase products are added to the mash tun during mash-in, starting when around one-third of the grist has been loaded into the mash tun.

BeerCo Beta Glucanase 0.100–0.25 kg/ton of grist, but depends deeply on malt quality, adjunct ration and type of raw material.

Optimum pH and temperature

The optimal working conditions for the BeerCo Beta Glucanase series is 45–70/75°C and a pH of 4.0–6.5.
