1) Increases FAN. Hydrolyses protein matrix surrounding starch granule so higher yields.
2) Required when brewing with all unmalted cereals including barley and sorghum.
Pro-Max is liquid neutral protease from self-cloned strain of Bacillus amyloliquefaciens
Starch is embedded in a protein matrix in most cereals, and can only be totally released when the matrix is sufficiently hydrolysed. Pro-Max allows a good extraction of soluble proteins from raw material when only raw grains are used. It increases the free amino nitrogen of the wort to get a good fermentation when malt proteases cannot be used, or when adjuncts represent a large proportion of the mash bill. Pro-Max enables getting enough protein to obtain good foam. It increases the yield when raw or highly unmodified cereals are used.
Pro-Max is added in the mash tun at a dosage of 200mls to 1 Liter per ton of grain or 500mls per ton of barley. The product should not be used together with other enzymes. Activity of Pro-Max will be maximal at 45-50°C with hydrolysis time of 30 minutes. It is completely denaturated after 10 minutes at 85°C.
