Novozymes Fungamyl® BrewQ helps you get the maltose/glucose ratios you need to match a range of beer styles. Fungamyl® BrewQ is a maltogenic alpha-amylase. It breaks down starches to give you a higher alcohol output. Fungamyl® BrewQ is also suited for the attenuation adjustment in fermentation.
In this product the key enzyme activity is provided by endo-amylase that hydrolyzes (1,4)-alpha-D-glucosidic linkages in starch polysaccharides.
Achieve desired attenuation
This product delivers predictable and targeted real degree of fermentation (RDF). It helps you to control the percentage of fermentable sugars you derive from starch. It allows you to increase fermentable sugars or maintain them at a specific level so you can achieve your desired attenuation.
By releasing more fermentable sugars in the brewhouse, this product supports the need to accelerate your fermentation times.
Achieved desired maltose-glucose ratio
Most brewer’s yeast strains consume the glucose in the wort before other sugars. Only then do they consume maltose. That’s why high levels of glucose in wort can inhibit the fermentation of maltose. With this product, you can achieve a maltose-glucose ratio to suit your specific yeast strain.
