The ideal filtration aid in beer



Containing β–glucanases and xylanases, LAMINEX® enzymes are an ideal filtration aid in beer.

The enzymes are an efficient tool for reducing viscosity, increasing solid-liquid separation yield and improving processing efficiency, particularly when processing substrates such as wheat, barley and rye.

Key Benefits:

  • Reduced wort viscosity and β-glucan and soluble arabinoxylan content
  • De-bottleneck wort filtration (lauter tun and mash filter operations)
  • Increased brewing capacity
  • Improved wort separation and beer filtration
  • Cost savings

Laminex® MaxFlow 4G: Max your beer flow

Brewing enzyme for optimum mash separation and beer filtration.

LAMINEX® MaxFlow 4G is a robust and sustainable brewing enzyme designed to deliver a high, consistent throughput without compromising beer quality – and regardless of raw material quality.

Based on highly specific xylanases and β-glucanases, LAMINEX® MaxFlow 4G significantly improves mash separation and beer filtration. The enzyme minimizes the risk of filter bed collapse due to high selectivity for water soluble arabinoxylans. LAMINEX® MaxFlow 4G is very efficient in reducing high-molecular weight β-glucan in all types of wort, making mash separation and beer filtration much easier and faster due to the reduction in wort viscosity.


Better Use of Resources and Lower Carbon Footprint

Especially at high gravity brewing, LAMINEX® MaxFlow 4G ensures consistency and maximization of cellar capacities.

Better filtration and less risk of filter cake collapse will also mean that cleaning operations need to take place much less frequently. This gives a much more consistent production flow leading to better economy for the brewery – and a lower CO2 footprint.

Test Results

LAMINEX® MaxFlow 4G has undergone rigorous laboratory and pilot scale testing in order to demonstrate its effects.

The following figures (fig.1 and fig.2) show results from pilot scale brewing trials on 30% barley in combination with malt applying LAMINEX® MaxFlow 4G and a market reference enzyme at high gravity brewing.
