Acetolactate-Decarboxylase (ALDC) enzyme converts vicinal diketones (VDK) precursors directly into the flavor-free end-products of acetoin and 2,3-pentanediol, reducing maturation time by 2-14 days. It is recommended to use ALDC with every brew. Some yeast strains, like US-05, produce a lot of VDK precursors and can benefit greatly from ALDC. Haze & Gluten Reducer (AN-PEP) is a proline-specific peptidase enzyme that degrades proline-rich, haze-forming peptides and proteins during beer fermentation. It is widely used in commercial brewing, and according to the manufacturer, 80% of commercial breweries in the world use AN-PEP to speed up the clarification process and to produce gluten reduced beers. Use 3 drops for clarification, 4 drops for hoppy beers, and 7 drops for gluten reduction.
