The best enzymes for liquefaction in distilling

To benefit from an optimal distilling process, you need to convert your solid starch into liquid mash, so it does not get stuck in your machinery. For every step, you should aim at building the best working conditions - so the yeast successfully transforms and gives you tasteful products.

For that, we are here to help. Whatever production facilities you are operating with, enzymes can help getting the mash ready faster, and for larger quantities. More specifically, Alpha amylase are enzymes that can help you improve your results of liquefaction.

This type of enzymes for liquefaction helps to cut the complex carbon structure into smaller pieces, thus making it a liquid ready for further saccharification/SSF. Making it a liquid not only makes it easier to pump around and leaves less residuals, but it also reduces the need for adding water and by consequence reduces the energy needed. It also results in more output because the mash is more concentrated and is more readily available for yeast.

Not all Alpha amylase enzymes for distilling are the same!

For them to be efficient, the Alpha amylase enzymes need to be optimized for distilling. There is a significant difference between natural and not optimized Alpha amylase enzymes and the ones optimized for liquefaction in distilling. Using the right type of enzymes will reduce the issues you might usually face along your production process while allowing you to use less equipment, save energy and money, and also increase your output and its quality.

How to use enzymes for liquefaction in distilling?

There is a lot of science that goes into developing and producing the best liquefaction enzymes. The great thing about those distilling enzymes is that you can easily implement them into your existing production processes. You will simply need to mix the liquefaction enzymes into your slurry or mixing tank, while making sure that the temperature and the pH are optimally controlled. No worries, our team of experts will help you at every step and will answer all the questions you might have.

How to make the best out of the optimized enzymes?


Be reassured, our best-in-class Alpha amylase enzymes were developed so that they could work on all types of starch. Even if different grains have different characteristics and different accessibilities of starch, our enzymes will be equally efficient and will give you great results.


The ideal storage conditions are in a sealed packaging, in a dry environment, protected from the sun and with a relatively cool temperature (0–10°C/32–50°F). For example, the fridge is a great storage location.

Extended storage and/or exposure to adverse conditions such as higher temperatures or increased humidity may lead to a higher dosage requirement. Even if the best enzymes can handle more extreme exposure without losing significant effect, it is recommended to keep all the storage metrics stable.


As you may know, enzymes are not alive chemicals, thus they do not grow and cannot multiplicate themselves on their own. For that reason, it is essential to use enough enzymes to convert the starch to fermentable sugars, so it is easier for the yeast to happen and to move through the factory. Depending on the quality and the concentration of the enzymes, you may need a different amount of product.
