Brewing Application sheet
Attenuation control and light beer production
Novozymes offers a broad range of attenuation control products to allow brewers to manage fluctuations in attenuation and create highly attenuated beers in a simple, cost-effective manner.
● Customized solutions to reach specific attenuation targets and needs
● Manage consumer trends towards low-calorie and light beers
● Opportunity to reach desired maltose to glucose ratios
● Obtain the desired level of fermentable sugars every time
AMG® 300 L BrewQ is a classic glucoamylase for producing highly fermentable glucose-based worts.
The Novozymes range of attenuation enzymes help to break down amylose and amylopectin.
The desired attenuation solution is a choice for the brewery to make. This application sheet focuses on the performance of Attenuzyme® Pro and Attenuzyme® Core, which are the recommended solutions for highly attenuated beer.
Rates of production of fermentable sugars are dose- and time-dependent.
As a rule of thumb, the RDF (real degree of fermentation) correlates with the amount of fermentable sugars * 0.91.
As shown in figure 2, Attenuzyme® Pro is faster at degrading dextrins into fermentable sugars when compared to Attenuzyme® Core due to additional pullulanase activity in Attenuzyme® Pro. The pullulanase works in synergy with malt β-amylase, generating a higher maltose content than Attenuzyme® Core and shortening saccharification times.
More information can be found in the “Brewing Handbook”.
