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 is a single –use cross linked polyvinylpyrroidone (PVPP). It is a colloidal haze stabilizer which can increase the shelf life of beer.
Auxiliary finings are added to cask beer at the end of fermentation, prior to isinglass addition to enhancing the clarification effects of isinglass.
Drifoam is a powder form of propylene glycol alginate designed to give a trouble free method of enhancing and protecting beer foam.
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.
Vicfine is purified isinglass in convenient powder formadded to beer at the end of fermentation to speed maturation and improve filtration.
Foamaid is a liquid form of propylene glycol alginate produced by the esterification of alginic acid. It is designed to give a trouble-free method of enhancing and protecting beer foam.
Protofine Liquid is a food grade ready to use liquid product designed to promote the flocculation and precipitation of yeast and protein complexes during cold storage of beer and in cask beer applications.
Cryofine contains purified isinglass in convenient powder form. It is added to beer at the end of fermentation to speed maturation and improve filtration by removing yeasts and protein particles. For the purposes of rapid dissolving, enhanced performance and long shelflife, the production of Cryofine involves improved disruption technology to enhance dissolving.
Protosol is a specifically selected colloidal silica sol, which promotes sedimentation of proteins and other solids from beer and wort. Protosol effectively clarifies wort and beer at very low addition rates, enabling increased throughput of your brewery without the need for investment in tank or filtration capacity.
