WLN4000 Clarity Ferm

CLARITY FERM IS DEVELOPED FOR TWO BREWING PURPOSES 

1) To reduce the appearance of chill haze, while also increasing the shelf life of packaged beer. 
2) Produces gluten-reduced beers that are brewed using barley and wheat.

Available in a variety of packages, from homebrew to professional brewer. 

*Note: Clarity Ferm is made with Brewers Clarex by DSM. White Labs is certified by DSM to produce and distribute a diluted version of Brewers Clarex, which is ideal for homebrewers and smaller professional brewers producing less than 5,000 barrels per year. 

FUNCTION:

Chill haze in beer results from the precipitation of complexed polyphenols and proteins during cold storage. This haze develops over time and, initially, is reversible (haze disappears when the temperature of the beer increases). Eventually this chill haze can become permanent.

Clarity Ferm will prevent the precipitation of complexed polyphenols and proteins by hydrolyzing the sensitive (haze-active) polypeptides in the region where such hydrogen bonding occurs. The specificity of the enzyme ensures that no other beer parameters (i.e. flavor, aroma) are affected.

This easy-to-use enzyme can be used on all types of brewing materials and is a cost effective product to replace silica gel or PVPP. Simply add when pitching yeast, and Clarity Ferm will do its work during fermentation. Once fermentation is complete, the possibility of chill haze occurring will be eliminated.

In addition to eliminating chill haze, Clarity Ferm significantly reduces the gluten content in beers made with barley and wheat. A Clarity Ferm treated beer made from barley or wheat usually tests below 20 ppm of gluten, the current international standard for "gluten free." White Labs also offers gluten testing for beers. While this test allows brewers to know the gluten level of their beers, the values may not be used on their labels until the FDA completes its own validation.
