Hello, i am about to experiment with non-saccharomyces yeast ( brettanomyces ) in brewing. As those yeast might not ferment well some sugars i want to add amylolytic enzymes during fermentation. I ve got 2 enzymes:
- Attenuzyme Core - which would hydrolise dextrines to glucose
- Fungamyl BrewQ - which hydrolises dextrines to maltose.
I want to make 2 worts, one with Attenuzyme Core, the other with Fungamyl
Both of them have low optimal activity temperatures, so adding them on fermentation wouldn't be a problem.
But i am not sure when to add them, i think if i add them alongside with yeast there might be too much sugars in wort.
I was thinking, wouldn't it be better to add them when fermentation is going to slow down, like 1 week after it starts?
My other concert is gravity of wort. I was going to make 12°P wort first, but now i am worried a little bit that it is too much, and there might be too high ABV that would kill my yeast before fermenting all the sugars. How low °P should i aim to? Like 10?
Thanks for all the responses.
