FermFast Alpha-Amylase Enzyme (15g) - For mashing up to 20 lbs. of starch
Thermostable powdered alpha-amylase enzyme for hydrolysis of long-chain starch molecules into short-chain dextrins. For use in mashing of grains, potato or any other starch-based substrate prior to saccharification (with glucoamylase) and ethanolic fermentation.
Add 1/3 of the sachet contents to the mash. After boil, adjust temperature to 185–203°F (85–95°C), add the other 2/3 of the sachet and hold temperature for 60 minutes before cooling. Optimum pH is 6 to 6.5. Enzyme is stable up to 230°F (110°C). Optimum activity at 185–203°F (85–95°C). Note: all enzymes require typically 50ppm calcium ions for maximum activity and stability.
