Pack Sizes:

  • 3g Sachet suitable for 5gal/23L home brew
  • 1L Bottle suitable for Probrewers

Brewing Benefits:

  • 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
  • Brut IPA

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.

Additional Information

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.
