Colloidal stabilisation of all malt and adjunct lager beers through selective removal of haze sensitive glycoproteins using silica gel and tannoid polyphenols using polyvinylpolypyrrolidone (PVPP) or a polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP)-modified silica gel has been demonstrated during full brewery production. At this scale PVPP and the PVP-modified silica gel exhibited equivalent binding capability for tannoid polyphenols although PVPP removed additional polyphenolic species. Characterisation of proanthocyanidins following treatment at 4°C with PVPP and the PVP-modified silica gel silica co-product confirmed that PVPP removes a wider range of polyphenolics. Both products exhibited poorer polyphenolic binding capability at 4°C as would be expected for a physical adsorption process. © 2005 The Institute of Brewing & Distilling.
