Process Aids

Lallemand Brewing is proud to offer brewers around the world the AB Vickers’ wide range of process aids and additives for optimizing capacity, improving processes and delivering cost-savings.

These process aids are applied in the following areas of the brewing process:

Wort clarification: Brewhouse copper finings promote hot trub compaction in the whirlpool or copper. Reducing losses by releasing a higher volume of clarified wort for fermentation and cold break removal where wort proteins associated with poor beer filterability and colloidal instability are removed.

Beer clarification: Including isinglass and auxiliary finings, our range of clarification aids can be applied to fermented beer to increase the pace of yeast and protein removal from beer. This reduces the time taken for cask beer to clarify, increases the volume and speed through the beer filter and improves the turnaround of vessels.

Antifoam: Our range of Antifoams are specifically designed to minimize foaming in kettle and fermenter ,thereby improving vessel utilization as well as hop utilization.

Beer stabilizers: A complete package for beer stabilization. Including Silica gels and PVPP to protect against colloidal haze, binding and removing specific proteins and poly phenols which combine to shorten shelf life.

Foam stabilizers: Our high performance foam stabilizers ensure longer lasting head retention by promoting foam positive proteins while guarding against foam negative ones.

Antioxidants: Scavenging dissolved oxygen, our antioxidants acts to protect flavor, as well as preventing further oxidation and staling in package. Ensuring a full shelf life is achieved.

ALPHACLAR S (ALS 511)

Alphaclar S is a single –use cross linked polyvinylpyrroidone (PVPP). It is a colloidal haze stabilizer which can increase the shelf life of beer.

ALPHAFLOC PASTE (PST503)

Alphafloc isinglass paste comprises finely divided that can speed maturation and improve filtration by removing yeasts and protein particles

AUXILIARY FININGS

Auxiliary finings are added to cask beer at the end of fermentation, prior to isinglass addition to  enhance the clarification effects of isinglass.

BREAKBRIGHT TABLETS (BBT 311)

Breakbright Tablets contain the semi-refined, granulated form of the seaweed species Eucheuma cottonii.

BRITESORB BK 75 BEER CLARIFIER

Britesorb BK 75 is a non-macerating silicic acid hydrogel that removes irreversibly only the protein groups which may cause low-temperature clouding.

COMPAC CG (CCG 311)

Compac CG is the semi-refined, granulated form of the seaweed species Eucheuma cottonii.

DRIFINE (DRI 141)

Drifine is purified isinglass added to wine at the end of fermentation to speed clarification and improve filtration by removing yeasts and particulate matter.

DRIFOAM (DFM 511)

Drifoam is a powder form of propylene glycol alginate designed to give a trouble free method of enhancing and protecting beer foam.

FOAMSOL (FDC 511)

Foamsol is a water based emulsion of dimethylpolysiloxane designed to control foams produced in kettle and fermenter.

LIQUID ISINGLASS FININGS

Liquid isinglass is added to beer post fermentation to clarify it by removing yeast and protein particles. Ready for use and concentrated forms are available.

VICANT (RED 411) BEER ANTIOXIDANT

Vicant is an anti-oxidant and anti-browning agent designed to enhance flavor and colloidal stability in beer.

VICFINE (FFV 161) BEER CLARIFICATIONS

Vicfine is purified isinglass in convenient powder formadded to beer at the end of fermentation to speed maturation and improve filtration.
