Compac CG Tablets- 2kg

Download the full technical sheet here

Compac CG is the semi-refined, granulated form of the seaweed species Eucheuma cottonii.

When added to boiling wort, kappa carrageenan reacts strongly with soluble proteins, notably the proline-rich haze precursor fraction. When the wort is cooled the carrageenan-protein complex becomes unstable and precipitates out of solution. The clear wort that results produces a beer with enhanced processing characteristics.

Benefits include

  • Improved hot break compaction in the whirlpool.
  • Improved yeast vitality during fermentation.
  • Improved filtration – longer filter runs.
  • Improved beer haze and colloidal stability.
Compac CG is typically added to wort at rates in the range 1–3g/hl. Variations in grist make-up, malt quality, brewing liquor, and plant operation all have a major impact on the carrageenan requirement. The correct addition rate is best identified by a simple optimisation test.


Principle

When added to boiling wort, kappa carrageenan reacts strongly with soluble proteins, notably the proline-rich haze precursor fraction. When the wort is cooled the carrageenan-protein complex becomes unstable and precipitates out of solution. The clear wort that results produces a beer with enhanced processing characteristics.

Treatment Rates

Compac CG is typically added to wort at rates in the range 1–3g/hl. Variations in grist make-up, malt quality, brewing liquor, and plant operation all have a major impact on the carrageenan requirement. The correct addition rate is best identified by a simple optimisation test (see later).

Identification of Optimum Addition Rate

Prepare a solution of Compac CG in hot water. Example: add 0.5 g Compac CG to 500ml boiling water. Stir for 10 minutes. Add the solution to a series of clear glass containers to give a range of treatment rates. Example: to 100ml containers add 0, 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 ml of solution. This will give an addition rate range of 0 to 5g/hl. Sample wort from the kettle at the end of the boiling period and whilst still hot add to the pre-dosed bottles. Mix well, seal, and allow to stand for an hour. Cool in cold water and allow to stand overnight. Assess results by observing the clarity of the wort and the sediment volume. The optimum result is obtained by identifying the addition rate at which a combination of clarity and low sediment volume is found. Interpretation of the results can be facilitated by measuring the haze or turbidity of the wort.
