Non-alcoholic Brewing Process Comparison
Most non-alcoholic beers suffer from inferior organoleptic properties due to the ‘side-effects’ of the physical removal of ethanol or the application of cold-contact with regular brewers’ yeasts. NEER is a traditional brewing solution, which can produce full bodied, flavorful, non-alcoholic beers using our patented Pichia kluyveri strain.

Key Features:

  • Pichia kluyveri strain: Isolated in New Zealand, selected for fermentation characteristics and its ability to only ferment monosaccharides.
  • Frozen yeast: Direct pitching for convenience, speed and safety. From freezer to fermenter in 1 hour.
  • Fermentation characterstics: Enhanced fruit flavours (esters/thiols) and medium production of polysaccharides for next generation full flavoured, yet fresh alcohol free beer.
  • Production benefits: Without production of diacetyl, the concept allows for shortened maturation cycles.
