Enzymes in Aus?

Postby crozdog » Tue May 18, 2010 6:19 pm

Hi guys,

I'm looking to start doing corn mashes & was wondering if anyone can advise where to source alpha-amylase & gluco-amylase enzymes in Australia?

I have found the following companies, but wondered if anyone had bought from these guys or any other companies:
http://www.deltagen.com.au/contact.html
http://www.enzymesolutions.com.au/ +61 3 9761 7999
Novozymes Australia Pty. Ltd. Unit 3 22 Loyalty Road North Rocks, NSW 2151

Depending on the minimum quantity we might have to do a bulk buy & split it. Anyone interested?

I bought some from Mile High Distilling.

http://www.milehidistilling.com/

I bought 500g of each, some yeast and a book and it wasn't expensive.

I hope to try it next week.

i have talked to the head guy at http://www.enzymesolutions.com.au/ and he was gratge and went out of his way to help with my questions

he even called me back an hour later with more info that i had asked for and he didnt have on hand

i was talking to him about wheat and rive and getting the maximum amount of alcohol in the quickest time
here is his reply
*************************************************************************

1. With stirring mix in about 30kg of finely crushed grain with
170 litres of water

2. Add 50ml of Spezyme AA (a Liquefying enzyme)

3. With stirring heat to a gentle boil and leave for 60-90
minutes. A temperature of 80-85 oC is also OK (If it is not too thick
can increase the amount of grain added in step 1 - perhaps to 40kg)

4. Cool to 60 oC and then add 50ml of Optidex L300 (a Saccarifying
Enzyme)

5. Continue cooling to 30 oC and then add Yeast and your own mix
of "yeast nutrients"

6. Ferment for 3 days

Spezyme AA is available in a 25kg drum at $13.50/kg +GST, including
delivery

Optidex L300 is available in a 20kg drum at $16.60/kg +GST, including
delivery

If these enzymes are stored refrigerated they will be stable for about 2
years. Do not freeze the enzymes.

**************************************************************

thos prices are over a year old now
Some people say its "FREE" but i say "there ant no free lunch" you get what you pay/work for

I got a sample of the following recently from a Melbourne supplier.

Glucoamylase called Diazyme X4NP and an
Alpha Amylase called Gzyme G997

Just picked up a bag of cracked corn and am yet to set it up ~ I've got the enzymes hold up in the fridge.
I'm interested in the pricing you can get for in NSW ~ please PM me and I'll compare it the VIC.
(more than happy to send off batches to folk in oz).

I know I am reviving an old thread but IMHO it's better than starting another.

Where can I get some enzymes in Oz? I figure I need some on hand if I am going to do all grain.
Don't adjust your mind the fault's with reality.
