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.
Beer treated with Cryofine requires shorter cold storage time, and has improved filterability. The sediments produced by Cryofine in the cold storage vessel are more compact, so less beer is lost during their removal.
• Reduced cold storage time.
• Fewer vessels.
• Lower energy use.
• Reduced beer loss.
• Improved filtration.
• Faster throughput.
• Reduced powder use.
• Improved beer haze and stability.
• Less re-work.
Cryofine is the preferred isinglass powder where ease of dissolving, and enhanced clarification power are required. Cryofine is particularly useful where less than ideal mixing equipment is available, or only small batches are required. Cryofine has a moderate effect on sensitive protein reduction.
Whilst not a beer stabiliser in its own right it contributes to the action of silica gel, and compliments PVPP. During settlement of flocculated solids, foam negative factors can be entrained. Brewers regularly notice that Cryofine-treated beers have improved foam stability.
