Ceremix® Flex, with its breakthrough technology and formulation of a thermostable maltogenic amylase, pullulanase, and α-amylase, simplifies brewing like never before. Ceremix® Flex allows brewers the flexibility to avoid cereal cooking steps when using high-gelatinizing adjuncts such as corn, rice, sorghum, or other similar materials. Ceremix® Flex helps you to adapt easily to changes in crop quality and also simplifies gluten free brewing. Production of similar maltose levels, more glucose and less dextrin in comparison with decoction mashing.

Benefits of using Ceremix® Flex:
  1. Process simplification
    • Avoiding the cereal-cooking process
    • Processing of high-gelatinizing adjuncts via an infusion mashing process
    • Liquefaction of adjunct starch below gelatinization temperature through native starch de-branching enzymes
    • No need for cooling in case of very high adjunct inclusions
    • Eliminates costs spent on a cereal cooker
  2. Raw material flexibility
    ● Adjunct inclusion is completely flexible
    ● Possible savings on raw materials replacing pre-gelatinized flakes
  3. Energy savings
    ● No need for cereal cooking
    ● Potential shorter total mashing time and optimal temperature profile

What other brewers say

"The team at Novozymes has been incredibly helpful to us as we began working to add gluten free beers to our lineup. They gave us recommendations on processes as well as products to improve our efficiencies and product in general. I have attempted to use other products in gluten free brewing, but I can say that the products from Novozymes gave far better results and it will be the product I prefer to use going forward."

- Ethan, Founder and Brewer at The Highway Brewing Co.

"We recently used both Ultraflo Max and Ceremix Flex in our seasonal hefeweizen, Banana Hammock. The combination of enzymes allowed us to use a locally grown wheat in place of a pre-gelatinized national brand. We saw an increase in body from the raw wheat, as well as a slight rise in overall mash efficiency while using the enzymes when compared to previous years."

FAQ

Where do I add Ceremix® Flex?

Ceremix® Flex is dosed in during the mashing. The enzyme is added after the mash tun is about 1/4 filled, but it does not need to be precise. The most important is that there are some liquid in the mash tun before you add Ceremix® Flex, so the enzymes can be evenly distributed, and does not get stuck in the bottom.

When you pour Ceremix® Flex into the mash tun, add the liquid slowly to get an even distribution.
