BEER

Beer brewed using Brewshield is loaded with potent anti-oxidants that neutralise the oxidative molecules that ruin your flavor, aroma and color compounds.

The Power of Nature

150 year old oak trees are able to avoid rotting, breaking down and spoiling in all types of harsh conditions from hot and dry to wet and cold. It is these same characteristics that allow our wood extract, BrewShield to provide a natural potent stabiliser in beer.

The congeners and phenolics contained in BrewShield are powerful anti-oxidants that assist in protecting your beer.

These elements scavenge any neutralizing oxidant reactions before they can affect the beer, strengthening the phenol and protein bonds inside to produce more resilient molecular structure in the beer without changing the appearance, taste and aroma.

Laboratory Testing

Through the most advanced laboratory testings (Electron Paramagnetic Resonance Spectroscopy – EPR) we are able to show a 78% overall reduction in oxidative and beer staling indicators.

This means that Brewshield is absorbing the oxidative elements in your beer, soaking up those same oxidants that interact with flavor, aroma and color molecules. ESR is able to detect the rate at which this is happening and show how this slows, giving you a beer that is more stable, fresher tasting and more resilient on shelf.

The Science of Great Beer

Dosing Rates

Brewshield dosing is very simple just add at the recommended dosage in the whirlpool. Brewshield is provided in 5,25 and 1000L containers as well as 1L and 5L bottles for sampling purposes.

Dosage should be applied at the rate of 1.5:1000, we have provided a dosage calculator alongside so that the brewer can achieve exact dosing proportions. In cases where brewers are having major problems with highly sensitive beers or exporting long distances (and time) they have increased the dosage to 2.0ml/L with only improved results.

There are no real consequences to overdosing as Brewshield is GRAS certified (Generally Recognised as safe) however we recommend exact dosing to ensure that the desired level of stabilisation occurs.

Dosing Protocols

Brewshield dosing is very simple just add at the recommended dosage at Whirlpool. Brewshield has been added in the bright tank however best results have been seen pre-fermentation.

Brewshield does not impact ph, alpha/beta acids, yeast or other brewing factors.Brewshield contains a level of alcohol so is aseptic with no contamination risks.

Filtration is recommended as part of your typical brewing activities.

Brewshield has been dosed in many many brews, where a variety of brewing and process methodologies have been applied. It is safe to use with your standard clarification and filtration regimes and does not impact in turbidity or haze formation.

Oak extract

Entirely natural process of manufacture
USDA organic certified
No impact on flavor, color or aroma
Used in a variety of beverage applications
Generally recognised as Safe (GRAS)
Contains antioxidant elements
No astringency

Brewers have asked us about the potential for flavor change when making use of an oak extract. Brewers are familiar with tannins and phenolics contained in Hops and Malt, and that these lead to astringency. The key tannin based antioxidants contained in our extract are Hydrolyzable tannins made up of the specific groups of gallic and ellagic acids, these are different to the tannins and phenols that are associated with astringency.

This means that your beer is maintained in the same original way that it was brewed, we have numerous white papers showing this and very large customers that are satisified their beer stays the way it was brewed. Click here to access some of these documents.
