i'm ashish from india.
i supply Rice Flakes to beer manufacturing companies in many parts of the country.
the saccarification time which i'm getting is around 55mins.
I want to reduce this time to around 30-35mins.
i've tries using alpha amylase(liquid form) but that was of very little help.

(If you want i can send you the details manufacturing step which we implement.)

What if i use AA in powder form and mix it into my final product(Rice Flakes).
Will it help in the conversion???

Kindly reply back or you can mail me your valuable feedback

Rice flakes have no enzymes to self-convert. You're not producing sweet wort, just transferring some long-chain carbohydrates to the liquid. Your end consumer will be using this as an adjunct to malted barley; they do not expect this to convert on it's own.

I highly recommend NOT adding alpha amylase. Again your end consumer will be using this as an adjunct to other grains, malted grains, and the addition of alpha amylase would cause a lot of brew calculations to be missed. It would also add a great deal of confusion, as nobody would ever suspect a manufacturer would be adding AA to any of their grains.
Time to have some fun
