Consumables for distilling

To summarize Potassium carbonate (K2CO3) an important chemical used in the making of distilled spirits. Used to adjust the pH of the spirit, as well as to raise the alcohol content. Also used to control the acidity of the spirit. Improving the mouthfeel and flavor of the spirit. Used to buffer the mash against pH changes. Not allowing it to go to low.

Alpha Amylase 100ml

In brief use Alpha Amylase to convert your starch into sugar. Endozym Alphamyl SB1, used at higher temperatures in the brew-house during mashing in order to facilitate the hydrolysis of starch into maltose, soluble dextrins and glucose.
Some of the obvious advantages are quick reduction of the viscosity of the cereal mash and the yield of more concentrated wort.

Subsequently an enzyme found in saliva and pancreatic juice that helps in the breakdown of carbohydrates into simple sugars. It catalyzes the hydrolysis of the alpha-1,4 linkage between two glucose molecules, the main component of starch and glycogen. Alpha amylase also found in plants, fungi, and bacteria, and used commercially to produce some types of alcohols. Alpha amylase activity is important in grain processing and production of baked goods, as it helps convert the starches in flour into sugars.
