DE and Craft Beer

Posted by appliedm on February 25th, 2016 in blog |



Craft brewers have always built their reputation on the “personality” of their beer. But how exactly does that come about? Well, a lot of things are key to the process, but the most important thing in making that awesome toasty Porter or blonde Ale is the filtration process you use to brew your beer. You want an all-natural filter system that produces the finest clarity, taste, and quality, and you want to use the highest quality filter aids. That means DE – diatomaceous earth. 

DE is the 20 million-year-old glass skeletons of microscopic plants known as diatoms. It makes for the most amazing filter aid for beer because of its structure, high pore volume and low resistance to flow. It’s been used for centuries and by over 90% of the most experienced brewers in the world today because no other filter system can produce the results that DE does. It removes fine particles from beer without affecting the color, flavor or body. It’s all natural, flexible and adaptable, letting you adjust your brewing standards to bring out the true personality of your beer. It lets you continue the art of brewing through the filtration process to produce the finest beer possible.
