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.
Compac CG tablets is best added to the kettle 10 minutes before the end of the boiling period. Benefits of using Compact CG tablets are improved hot break compaction in the whirlpoll, improved yeast vitality during fermentation, improved filtration - longer filter runs, improved beer haze and colloidal stability.
Compac CG tablets are packed in 2 ks bags. Authorised under European Parliament and Council Directive 95/2/EC. Expiration is up to 3 years if stored in a dry environment at 5-20 °C.
