Processing Aids? Ingredients? What’s the difference?

Description

This is a four-part lecture discussing various processing aids and cellar additions. Those terms need to be clearly understood as they are totally different in nature and affect the strict adherence to the Reinheitsgebot (German Purity Law). Clarifiers and fining agents, physical haze prevention and colloidal stabilization, and finally exogenous enzymes are reviewed. Where they come from, how and where in the process they can be used is also discussed. Although this wide spectrum of products can assist in increasing capacity, improving overall quality, and even assist the brewers to innovate, let’s emphasize that most of those products should not be viewed as replacement for good practices of brewing, fermenting, aging, and post-maturation handling.


Learning Objectives

  • Describe where in the brewing operations processing aids can be used
  • Explain the mechanism of action of foaming and anti-foaming agents
  • Describe where and why those different agents can be used
  • Have an understanding of the various clarifying agents that can be used in the brewhouse but also in the cellars
  • Review and discuss the use of enzymes in the brewing process
