Process aids

  • Alphaclar S

    Alphaclar S is a single-use cross-linked polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVPP). It is a colloidal haze stabiliser which can increase the shelf-life of beer. Alphaclar S absorbs the haze-active polyphenols which would otherwise react with haze-active proteins in filtered beer to form colloidal haze during storage.

  • Compac CG

    A semi-refined form of the seaweed species Euchema cottonii, used for wort clarification and available in granular or tablet form. The clear wort that results produces a beer with enhanced processing characteristics.

  • Breakbright

    Breakbright is used for wort clarification and available in powdered or tablet form. Breakbright contains a dispersive aid, which allows effective action when added to the whirlpool as well as wort copper.

  • Liquid isinglass

    Liquid Isinglass is added to beer post fermentation to clarify by removing yeast and protein particles. Ready for use and concentrated products are available. Isinglass is essential for cask beer production in that it quickly yields bright beer with a tight stable sediment.

  • Alphafloc paste

    Alphafloc paste is a very concentrated form of isinglass which has to be converted into ready for use isinglass before addition to beer.

  • Vicfine

    Vicfine is purified isinglass in convenient powder form. It is added to beer at the end of fermentation to speed maturation and improve filtration by removing yeasts and protein particles.

  • Drifine

    Drifine is purified isinglass in convenient powder form. It is added to beer at the end of fermentation to speed maturation and improve filtration by removing yeasts and protein particles.

  • Auxiliary finings

    Auxiliary finings are added to cask beer at the end of fermentation, prior to the isinglass addition, to enhance the clarification of isinglass.

  • Foamsol

    Foamsol is a water based emulsion of inert polymer which is highly effective in foam suppression in both kettle and fermenter.

  • Yeastlife Extra

    Yeastlife Extra is a powder yeast nutrient based on readily available sources of nitrogen blended with additional amino acids, minerals and vitamins for consistent, predictable fermentations.

  • Fermaid K

    Fermaid K is a completely natural blend of inactive yeast, minerals and vitamins, produced to the highest levels of hygiene and quality and is used in the fermentation of beer wort.

  • Servomyces

    Patented Servomyces is the most unique yeast nutrient available in brewing – a biological substance produced without chemicals or additives. Servomyces improves yeasts ability to incorporate essential nutrients, especially zinc into its cellular structure.

  • Britesorb

    Britesorb’s range of silica gels selectively adsorb the haze forming proteins in beer, but do not remove the head positive proteins therefore promoting a stable and attractive head of foam.
