It is an alpha-amylase enzyme selected for its ability to break mash viscosity and its efficiency to convert starch to dextrin chains in the cooking/mashing process. It enables easy agitation and pumping. It can be used on whole grain mashes and starch-based substrates. DistilaZyme® AA is proposed in an easy to dose liquid format.
pH range: optimum pH is 4.5-5.5
Temperature range: optimum temperature is 75-85oC
For gelatinization of grain/starch: 35-75 mL per 100 kg of grain
Please note that the optimal yeast dosage is variable according to individual distillery production processes.
DIRECTIONS OF USE
- Using a clean, sanitized and rinsed graduated container, fill with the required amount of DistilaZyme® AA.
- Add DistilaZyme® AA to the mash tank at a temperature of 75-85oC and pH range of 4.5-5.5. Dosing can be split if viscosity break is needed prior to optimal cook temperature to facilitate agitation.
- After the DistilaZyme® AA is added to the mash tank, a hold time of 60 minutes is recommended at 75-85oC to complete gelatinization of starch (dependant on grain/starch type and amount in recipe).
DistilaZyme® AA should be stored in a cool (5-10oC) and dry area away from heat and direct sunlight for maximum stability.
Shelf life is 12 months if stored under 10oC. Storage approaching 12 months above this temperature may result in decreased activity where additional products may need to be dosed.
