Crosby & Baker Amylase Enzyme Formula

This is for the general discussion about the whole process end to end.

Crosby & Baker Amylase Enzyme Formula

Postby Alfred » Wed Mar 17, 2010 8:31 pm

The guy at the brew shop assured me these little bottles had alpha and beta. They don't. Just alpha. So I currently have 10 gallons of starchy corn sludge in my BOP and no malt on hand. And the bastards at the brew shop won't grind it for you anyway. That's a problem for a guy with no grain mill. This is why arsons happen.

Point is, don't buy this product expecting to mash with it alone. Is Mile Hi the best place to buy enzymes?

Hey Mud, I have the same bottle of that stuff. It isn't real clear from the label, eh?

I got my enzymes from Mile Hi. Couldn't find any other distributor unless you want to buy 50lb drums from China. Mile Hi must be making a killing on these enzymes, the 50lb drums are WAY cheaper per lb. :x

I got mine from Mile Hi, alpha and gluco.
it did the job nicley on rice, but I shoulda boiled the corn longer for a better convert.

depends on how much malt you need to grind, but you could always do it in small batches in the food processor.

Thanks guys. Big batches, VB. 40 gallons at a time. The food processor will die of fright. Looking at mills right now trying to decide between a crankandstein and barley crusher. Gonna make an order from Mile Hi tomorrow.

Good thread, evilpsych. Thanks for that. Thinking about upgrading from a corona type mill, very helpful.

So will the Crosby & Baker Amylase work if you added beano for the beta amylase part of the conversion?I've got some of the C&B myself and wondered why things didn't seem to convert well.I know that barley malt will do the job,but I don't want to add it to every run(rice).Some times you just don't want the malt flavor.Thanks

To dredge up an old topic and offer a solution...

1 ounce bottle of Convertase AG 300 it is Glucoamylase

don't forget the shipping cost Jake

this is the email G&G sent me
Shipping would be $14.25 whether you get 1 or 2 bottles as I think we can
fit two bottles in one box.

thanks

Too rich for my blood. Spose I'll get it sent to my inlaws and pick it up in the summer.

Thanks for the heads up though. Do you happen to know what is in the Ritchie's amylase? I assume it's just alpha.
