Gluco Amylase Enzyme is added to your mash to convert dextrins (a type of carbohydrate) into fermentable sugars and is most often used when producing whisky.
- Gluco Amylase is often used in fermenting all-grain recipes for craft spirits
- Add Gluco to your mash at room temperature
- Gluco is only used in fermenting light beers because the Gluco breaks everything down to the point that you have a very low-bodied (and often dry) beer
- Although Gluco is perfect with something like baker's yeast, you don't need to add it if you're using many turbo yeasts so check your yeast's label
Use 50g - 100g oer 100-lb of grain or starch.
