Deltazyme XYL is a purified food grade enzyme derived from Trichoderma and Penicillum. This preparation is particularly suited for adjunct brewing with wheat flour because, in addition to containing cellulase activity, it also has a high xylanase (pentosanase) activity.
Use of Deltazyme XYL in the mash-tun when wheat flour is used as an adjunct will result in hydrolysis of wheat derived pentosans and gums, a reduction on wort viscosity and an increase in the rate of run-off. Additional benefits from the use of DELTAZYME XYL will be an improvement in extract and the elimination of haze problems in the final beer.
The recommended dose rate for Deltazyme XYL is 0.1-0.3gm / kg of malt directly to the mash.
