WeissBioTech adds DELTABREW® PURE, providing Brewers optimum beer stabilisation and foam stability.

Enzymes are added as processing aids to optimise brewing during mashing or fermentation for increasing the production of fermentable sugars, to aid the mash filtration, to speed up the maturation process and in the case of low-calorie beers: to decrease the amount of carbohydrates in final products.

WeissBioTech offers the Brewers around the world a complete range of safe, compliant, economic and customized enzyme solutions for malting, cereal cooking & mashing, fermentation, attenuation & filtration, beer maturation and stabilization.

Mr. Steffen Wackenhut, Master Brewer and Global Sales Director at WeissBioTech: ‘’Today's brewers face new challenges and opportunities due to the many beer fashions and trends. We understand it is critical to fully appreciate the nature of the available raw materials and each unique brewing process.’’

DELTABREW® PURE was recently launched by WeissBioTech and is the latest addition to their brewing enzyme portfolio. The protease enzyme eliminates chill haze formation during cold storage and provides beer and foam stability. Industrial scale trials by Brewers around the world are taking place as the enzyme is addressing multiple unmet needs, such as:

  • It is derived from non-GM fermentation processes.
  • Unlike similar products, it has no negative impact on beer taste.
  • It is a protease active and stable even at cool fermentation temperatures.
  • It optimizes cost-in-use / brewing economics.

Dr. Vasil Iliev, Technical Sales & Application Manager at WeissBioTech: ‘’Chill haze formation is the result from binding of complex polyphenols and proteins during cold storage of the beer. The haze can become permanent over time. While added during the fermentation, DELTABREW® PURE protease enzyme prevents the haze formation to happen and allows beer to maintain its original clarity.’’
