DuPont Nutrition & Biosciences (DuPont) has announced a new enzyme solution for adjunct liquefaction: AMYLEX® 6T. The innovative enzyme enables numerous business gains for breweries and distilleries alike including the ability to expand into new segments with locally-sourced raw materials, improve productivity, maximize yield, ensure consistent quality and ultimately increase profitability.

AMYLEX® 6T is the latest enzyme to meet the mark, precisely engineered with a high proportion of endo-alpha-amylase-activity to specifically target viscosity reduction, even for tannin-rich raw materials like sorghum which de-risks process issues. For brewers using 100% corn, it offers an even higher extract yield.

This novel solution also requires  very low dosage, delivering  20% lower peak viscosity than the benchmark, up to 20% shorter liquefaction time at a very broad pH range (from pH 4.8 to 6.0) anda a higher-than-normal “first time right,” reducing the risk of costly production re-runs and wasted product.

This  enables  potential for higher profits, additional  opportunities  for brewers to get creative with their brews and for distilleries to improve performance.
