Kerry BioHaze™ 1 kg
BioHaze™ is a new and specifically developed product designed to deliver natural and stable turbid or cloudy appearance in beer. Added post-filter, it allows the brewer to achieve the correct visual appearance using otherwise standard lager or pale ale ingredients. BioHaze™ increases the haze instantly and maintains the cloudy effect in beer. Results of Kerry’s extensive research, development, and application trials show that BioHaze™ is unique with regard to stability, and does not sediment easily when compared with existing technologies.
Application & Usage Rate
Prepare a 2-5% solution in water as described below. Recommended dose rate is 0.1 – 0.2 lb/bbl (50-100 g/hl, or 500 to 1000 ppm), which is equal to a 2.5 – 5 litres of a 2% solution, or 1-2 litres of 5% solution (wt/vol) per hl of beer. If this solution is to be used within a day of preparation, there is no need to add preservative.
Preparation of a 2% Solution:
When preparing a solution of BioHaze™, a standard agitator is sufficient. BioHaze™ disperses easier in cold water, so it is best to use cold water, and sufficient time should be given stirring to ensure complete dissolution. Proceed as follows using standard high-speed agitator for 1000 liters of a 2.0% solution:
- Place 264 gallons (1000 liters) of cold water in tank and turn on the agitator until a good vortex is formed.
- Take 20 kg of BioHaze™ and add slowly at the vortex, ensuring no lumps are formed.
- Stir until dissolved – time will be dependent on the water temperature and the speed of agitator. The cooler the water the easier it is to disperse, however dissolution is slower at low temperatures.
