The function of the yeast autolyzer is a reliable inactivation of the yeast cells in the harvested yeast by heat. The old yeast can then be sold as animal feed, for example, and thus offers an additional source of income.
The procedure is used in the brewing industry. In the brewing process, 3 to 4 times as much yeast is produced during fermentation as is required for pitching. Accordingly, there is a surplus of harvested yeast which must be disposed of.
The system is characterized by exact compliance of the heating temperature combined with reliable autolysis of the yeast cells.
Together with our partner company M&L Consulting, we also offer suitable solutions for beer recovery from the harvest yeast, such as cross-flow filtration.
