Still Spirits Enzyme - Gluco AmylaseRegular price $3.00
Glucoamylase is a fungal-derived enzyme for breaking down short-chain dextrins in starch substrate mashes to yield simple, fermentable sugars. Glucoamylase is applied either post-mashing or added with yeast for simultaneous saccharification and fermentation.
Sufficient for treatment of up to 7.5 kg (16.5 lb) liquefied starch for fermentation volumes up to 25 L (6.6 US Gal).
1. Add enzyme to liquefied starch slurry or malted grain mash once at or below 65°C (149°F).
2. Stir well, cover (or hold at 50-60°C (122-140°F)) and allow to stand for 1 hour before cooling for fermentation.
Alternatively, add to mash/wort along with yeast and ferment at optimum 30-35°C (86-95°F) ambient air temperature (ensuring within tolerance for yeast) for simultaneous saccharification and fermentation.
