What brewers are saying

"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."

-Brandon Ridings, Ono Brewing Company


"Maturex Pro has streamlined our product process by ensuing that we consistently and reliably clearn VDK tests on schedule to not only get beer out on time but to maximize the capacity of our cellar by reducing lengthy maturation times."

-Tony Teilli, Head Brewer, Roughtail Brewing Co.


"Ultraflo Max has exceeded all of our expectations. We have increased our average brew house efficiency, from ~75% to ~91% since using this product. It has become a MUST have during brew days!"

-Skylar Reed, Tradition Brewing Company


"Rice has limited enzymes. Recently, I used Ondea Pro in my experimental brewery. I have seen drastic increase in extract yield, efficiency of my wort and beer filtration."

-Jim Eckert, Eckert Malting and Brewing


"With Ultraflo Max, we were able to eliminate human error and stuck mashes while saving time in our brew house."

-Charles Porter, Founder and Brewmaster, Little Beast Brewing
