Still Spirits Distiller's Enzyme Alpha-amylase 12g
For those wanting to ferment with genuine yeast strains when making Whiskey, Rum, Vodka and Gin, look no further than the Distillers Range for home craft distilling,
Distiller's Enzyme Alpha-amylase is a bacterially-derived, powdered alpha-amylase enzyme for breaking down (or liquefying) gelatinised starch to yield short chain dextrins and simple sugars prior to saccharification with glucoamylase and fermentation by yeast.
Sufficient for treatment of up to 7.5 kg liquefied starch for fermentation volumes up to 25 L (6.6 US Gal).
Bring your starch substrate slurry to the boil and simmer for 30 minutes, then turn off the heat and allow to cool to 80°C (176°F) or just below.
Add enzyme and stir well and then cover (or hold at 65-80°C) and allow to stand for 60 minutes.
