Kerry Biofine™ Eco 20 kg
Biofine™ Eco is a plant-based fining agent developed to improve beer clarification by instant flocculation of yeast and trub.
Developed as a part of part of Kerry’s Eco Brewing range, Biofine™ Eco is a plant derived alternative to traditional clarification aids such as isinglass and silicon dioxide-based products.
Biofine™ Eco can improve beer recovery by 28% compared to unfined beer and 8% compared to Isinglass fined beer. It can also reduce turbidity from 55.4 NTU / 13.9 EBC in unfined beer to 22.3 NTU / 5.6 EBC. Allowing Biofine™ Eco to shorten maturation time due to quick settling and produces a more compact yeast sediment haze for easier cleaning and reduced disposal cost.
Biofine™ Eco is a natural and economical option for clarification aid in the brewing process that does not impact beer flavour.
Preparation and Application:
To prepare a standard Biofine Eco solution, stir 1 kg of Biofine Eco into 100 liters of 15 – 25ºC water with a high shear mixer or recirculate with a pump for 30 – 60 minutes. Add solution immediately after mixing at a dose rate of 500 – 2,000 mL/hL (425 – 1,700 mL/BBL) of beer. It is advisable to perform a fining trial to determine optimum dose rate.
The solution must be added in a manner which allows effective mixing with beer. Metering into the beer stream entering a lagering or bright beer tank produces the best results. Alternatively, Biofine Eco solution contained in a keg can be dosed into beer using CO2 pressure via the sample cock or an in-line dosing fitting throughout the filling of a lagering or bright beer tank.
