Distiller’s Enzymes

Distiller's Enzymes
Enzymes for Distillers

Distiller’s Enzymes are beneficial in distilling. It helps fermentation performance, improve production yield. Distillers will see higher throughput, better flavour control, and more consistent product quality. We are an enzyme supplier and guarantee all enzyme products are at competitive prices.

Distilling enzymes break down starch and reduce mash viscosity. Enzymes are used in spirits making before the fermentation process. Enzymes will expose fermentable sugars in base ingredients, then they can be fermented by yeast.

Distiller’s Enzymes Benefits

  • Starch Liquefaction
  • Starch Saccharification
  • Fermentation Improvement

Distillers Enzyme Products

The most popular enzymes for distilling industry are high temperature alpha-amylase and glucoamylase.

Acid protease pathogens are amino acids, the best nutrients for yeast growth, and a promoter of fermentation. In addition to a large amount of starch in corn raw materials, it also contains a certain amount of crude protein and starch closely combined, which influences the hydrolysis rate of the starch. In the fermentation process, the addition of acid protease, through hydrolysis protein, so that some difficult hydrolysis starch release, for amylase glycation to create conditions, but also for the fermentation yeast to provide abundant food.

Especially acidic proteases have the following enzymatic functions in the alcohol fermentation process:

Promotes the dissolution of raw material particles

The acid protease is highly soluble in the particles of wine-producing raw materials, which creates favourable conditions for glycation fermentation. In addition to its own dissolving effect on particles, the acid protease can be adsorbed by the salsase and the amylase has a relief effect so that glycated fermentation can be carried out smoothly.

Is conducive to microbial proliferation

The acidic protease of moulds plays an important role in microbial proliferation. Since it breaks down and produces L-amino acids, it can be extracted and used directly by microorganisms. In alcohol fermentation plus acid protease, so that the protein in the raw material can be broken down more easily, so that the yeast provides more free amino acids, shorten the fermentation time.

Promotes alcohol fermentation

The reason for the promotion of alcohol fermentation by acid proteases is to increase the FAN level in the liquid, promote yeast growth and reproduction and reduce the loss of soil logistics and energy consumption caused by the use of bacteria for the synthesis of amino acids.

Effects on the viscosity of the fermentation liquid

Acid protease has some effect on the viscosity of the fermented liquid, the study shows that the increase in acid protease increases, the viscosity of the fermented poison significantly reduced. As the viscosity of the fermentation liquid is reduced, it can improve the pumping efficiency and cooling effect of plate heat exchange and improve the separation efficiency of hydraulic filtration after distillation.

Fragrances and flavors provide

Acid protease in the tartaric acid environment, the crude protein hydrolysis into amino acids, amino acids are the crude alcohol flavor components of the premise of the substance.


Degraded yeast protein bacteria

Acid protease can effectively break down the bacteria protein of the yeast, and the dead yeast body has the ability to break down the active yeast has no effect. After a large number of dead yeasts are broken down by acid proteases, they are not only good nutrients for microorganisms, but can also effectively provide precursor material for the flavored ingredients of alcohol.
