The best enzymes for viscosity reduction in distilling

Even with good liquefaction and saccharification processes, you can end up with mashes that are too viscous. Viscosity can cause problems in production and can reduce the longevity of your machinery.

This happens especially with small grains (such as rye, wheat, barley, and triticale) and is caused by water-binding non-starch polysaccharides (NSPs). Those are challenging to extract and solubilize and call for special enzymes. The viscosity-reducing enzymes break down NSPs so the production can run at a high DS level while giving you a great flexibility in the choice of your raw materials.
