Better Flow:
Ultraflo® Max

  • Benefits Overview
  • Use It For
  • Combine It With
  • Increase brew house efficiency and save on material costs
  • Consistent and high-speed wort filtration
  • Consistently increase brew house capacity, minimize brew house and beer filtration capacity cost
  • Avoid stuck mashes
  • Helps to reduce or eliminate production variations due to varying quality of raw materials
  • Helps to increase yields during High/Very High Gravity Brewing
  • To reduce the viscosity of wort and beer.
  • To increase gravity of beer
  • To brew Rye IPAs, or other rye beers
  • To increase brew house efficiency and extract yields, achieve a faster filtration and minimize process fluctuations.
  • Ultraflo® Max + Attenuzyme® Pro
  • Ultraflo® Max + Ceremix® Flex

Starch Degradation Boost:
Ceremix® Flex

  • Benefits Overview
  • Use It For
  • Combine It With

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

Raw material flexibility

  • Adjunct inclusion is completely flexible
  • Possible savings on raw materials replacing pre-gelatinized flakes

Energy savings

  • No need for cereal cooking
  • Potential shorter total mashing time and optimal temperature profile
  • High-gelatinizing adjuncts are corn, rice, sorghum, buckwheat, millet
  • Gluten-free beer, high gravity brewing
  • Ceremix® Flex + Ultraflo® Max
  • Ceremix® Flex + Attenuzyme® = higher attenuation (drier brut IPA)

Unusual Raw Materials:
Ondea® Pro

  • Benefits Overview
  • Use It For
  • Combine It With
  • Higher extract yield
  • Efficient wort and beer filtration
  • Control of FAN (free amino nitrogen) and fermentability
  • Improve foam stability and body
  • High adjunct decoction is possible
  • High Gravity Brewing with up to 26°P (first wort) is possible
  • Production of high-quality beer
  • Enables the use of unmalted barley
  • Flexible sourcing of raw materials*
    • * these benefits are contingent upon raw materials used
  • To take the guesswork out of your brewing, whether you would like to brew traditionally to improve:
    • your brewing process
    • use high quantity of adjuncts, lower quality raw materials
    • brew a gluten free beer
    • or brew with raw barley or a new raw material altogether to cut costs and/or create new flavors
  • Ondea® Pro + Ceremix® Flex = gluten-free beer (higher extract yields)
    • You can skip the gelatinzation step by combining these two enzymes

Hello, Attenuation:
Attenuzyme® Pro

  • Benefits Overview
  • Use It For
  • Combine It With
  • Customized solutions to reach specific attenuation targets and needs
  • Manage consumer trends towards low-calorie and light beers
  • Opportunity to reach desired maltose to glucose ratios
  • Obtain the desired level of fermentable sugars every time
  • Low-calorie beer, Brut IPA, or Strong and dry beers.
  • Light Pilsners, light lagers, light ales
  • Attenuzyme® + Ultraflo® Max to achieve better wort separation and beer filtration

Diacetyl, Be Gone:
Maturex® Pro

  • Benefits Overview
  • Use It For
  • Combine It With
  • Prevents the formation of diacetyl and 2,3-pentanedione in beer (butter off-flavor)
  • Shorter maturation time leading up to higher-capacity utilization
  • Eliminate diacetyl rests
  • Reduce/eliminate Dry Hop Creep
  • Eliminate/reduce the precursors of VDK and Diacetyl, which ultimately saves time and money for the maturation process through higher capacity utilization
  • Reduce off-flavors caused by exceeding diacetyl threshold
  • Use it for any beer to reduce diacetyl threshold
  • New England style IPAs to reduce dry hop creep
  • Any Novozymes Enzyme!
