within the industry. That’s why we are proud to feature Green River Distilling on the front cover of this year’s catalog. Green River Distilling Co. was founded by J.W. McCulloch. He began making whiskey in 1885 and traveled the world to promote his brand. Green River Whiskey became synonymous with quality and known for producing some of the finest bourbon in Kentucky. Soon the whiskey was winning international awards, including a gold medal and “best of show” at the Paris Exposition in 1900, and later the grand prize at the 1905 Exposition in Belgium. To this day, Green River lore is some of the most fascinating in the whiskey world. Known as the “most expensive spirit ever sold,” 20 barrels were once traded for interest in a Colorado gold mine. Songs were penned about the “whiskey without a headache,” and early reviews described it as a “king among whiskeys.” Sadly, at the height of Green River’s popularity, a fire broke out on the distillery grounds. In just three hours, most of the buildings and whiskey barrels were reduced to rubble. The distillery was rebuilt, but Prohibition was passed and J.W. MCulloch wouldn’t live to restore Green River to glory. In the following decades, the distillery passed hands on several occasions. The Medley Distilling Company was the most well known to operate on the grounds. In 2014, the distillery with such a storied history

IFF Danisco ® Distilling Enzymes

IFF Danisco ® Distilling Enzymes (continued) Liquefaction Enzymes

Traditional brewing and distilling rely on the enzymes produced by malted grains to convert starch into fermentable sugars. Some of the critical enzymes developed during malting are amylases, proteases, and cellulase. These same enzyme activities are offered by Gusmer as IFF Danisco distilling enzymes. IFF is a global leader of innovative and sustainable solutions in food, beverage, health, biosciences and sensorial experiences. Gusmer Enterprises has partnered with this iconic brand to serve the distilling industry. Today, enzymes are used by distillers to improve process ef ciency, increase alcohol yield, enhance fermentation, and to maintain overall quality and assure brand consistency. With enzymes, distillers can make use of locally produced grains and alternative raw materials to create unique, single-grain and alternative spirits. They are fundamental tools for consistently producing high quality spirits. Liquefaction

Liquefaction - Heat stable enzymes break down starch and reduce mash viscosity for better mixing and processing.

Mashing is the first step in processing starch-containing grains to alcohol. When milled grain is added to water and heated, the starch in the grain gelatinizes making it available to enzymes, but with a dramatic increase in viscosity. During liquefaction , mash viscosity is reduced by alpha-amylase enzyme activity that breaks down starch molecules to produce water-soluble dextrin fragments and maltose. Viscosity Reducing Enzymes Enzymes such as cellulase, beta-glucanase, xylanase, and arabinase break down the non-starch components of grains to release more starch for conversion and reduce mash viscosity.

Low Temperature α-amylase

AMYLEX ® LT

Water-soluble fragments of starch called dextrins are unfermentable carbohydrates that must be broken down even further in saccharification to produce fermentable sugars. Glucoamylase enzymes break off single molecules of highly fermentable glucose from starch molecules, dextrins and maltose. Fermentation Enhancement Fermentation enhancement enzymes, protease and peptidase, aid the breakdown of grain endosperm, a protein-starch matrix, into smaller proteins and amino acids releasing starch for conversion and providing additional amino acid nutrients in the wash for yeast to thrive. Enzymes are proteins that act as catalysts to promote chemical reactions. Very small amounts of an enzyme can cause a significant, but specific change in a large amount of material. Enzymes act more slowly at lower temperatures and are permanently denatured by high temperatures. Process temperature, pH and enzyme additions must be controlled for optimum results. When using specific combinations or blends of all these enzymes, a distiller can reduce mash viscosity, increase extract, produce more fermentable sugars and assure consistency even with varying raw material. IFF Danisco distilling enzymes from Gusmer supply these key enzyme activities and provide the tools to reduce cost, waste and energy consumption, accelerate production and achieve consistently high quality spirits. IFF liquid enzymes are available in a variety of pack sizes, ranging from jerricans to IBC totes. Contact your Gusmer representative on availability and lead times.

Gusmer Enterprises Micro Elements ® Hard Seltzer HG Nutrients for RTD Production

Gusmer Enterprises Micro Essentials TM Nutrients Nutrients for Distilling

Micro Elements Hard Seltzer HG is a powder blend of complex fermentation nutrients formulated for high gravity RTD fermentations. It is composed of organic and inorganic nitrogen, vitamins, trace minerals, sterols, amino acids, proteins and peptides. • High gravity RTD fermentation (≥25° Plato) • Fast fermentation times • High alcohol yields • Neutral flavor and aroma profile Instructions for Use Rehydrate Micro Elements Hard Seltzer HG in 10X the weight in process water and mix for 10 minutes. Add the hydrated solution to the fermenter with the sugar base prior to yeast inoculation in one addition.

The use of fermentation nutrients in alcoholic fermentations is well documented. In addition to fermentable sugars, yeast require nitrogen (free amino nitrogen), vitamins, minerals, sterols and more in order to build biomass and reach the cell density required for a healthy fermentation. While fruit and grain substrates supply the carbohydrates required for fermentable sugars, they often lack these other key nutritional components. When these key nutritional components are not made available, and yeast grow under stressful conditions, fermentations are often sluggish, inconsistent, incomplete and produce undesirable metabolites such as hydrogen sulfide that can carry over into the distillate.

Gusmer’s Micro Essentials fermentation nutrients, designed specifically for alcoholic fermentations, are based on findings from the latest research and incorporate premium ingredients. Our complex supplements contain highly refined polypeptides and amino acids, a full spectrum of essential vitamins, minerals and yeast survival factors for a rich source of compounds that are highly assimilable by yeast. These nutrients are produced locally in our own facility, under GMP conditions. Used to support yeast growth, protein synthesis, general metabolism, and alcohol tolerance, Micro Essentials contribute greatly to vigorous fermentations, consistent congener production and help guard against the formation of unwanted metabolites. Yeast Nutrients for Distillation Micro Essentials Powder is a full spectrum nutrient blend in a powdered form, which is dosed into the fermenter during inoculation, and as required throughout the alcoholic fermentation. It is recommended for all fruit and grain based spirits, especially when the FAN (free amino nitrogen) is known to be low or fermentation conditions prove to be challenging. Micro Essentials Complete -TR is a time-release fermentation nutrient. Alcoholic fermentations often require incremental additions of nutrients during the early stages as a means to manage the fermentation. The demand is greatest during the exponential phase of the yeast growth cycle, when the cells require more organic nitrogen-rich compounds to reach the desired level of biomass. Incremental addition assures nutrient availability to these later generations of yeast. Micro Essentials Complete was developed as a solution to the difficulties of incremental additions. Nutrients are compressed into tablets creating a distinct time-release profile, delivering the proper dose and composition as needed – but with a single addition. Both tablets are added together in equal parts at the onset of inoculation. One tablet contains a higher percentage of organically derived nitrogen, along with inorganic nitrogen, vitamins, minerals and yeast survival factors, and has a fast dissolution rate. This tablet provides the nutrients required to build biomass during the exponential phase. The other tablet is formulated with the same ingredients, but has a higher percentage of inorganic nitrogen and a slower dissolution rate. Together, these two tablets provide the right composition of nutrients at the right time.

Caramel color is widely used in dark spirits and liqueurs to standardized color hue and intensity, allowing for specific color specifications, batch to batch consistency, and in some cases, protection of flavors and aromas from light damage. DDW produces a wide range of caramel colorings for distilling applications, each at a different hue index and color intensity. Formulated for good alcohol solubility and overall stability, these colorings are produced from the highest quality ingredients, are neutral in flavor and aroma, and comply with global regulations for caramel coloring. Gusmer offers a range of Class I and IV caramel colorings to the distilling industry for use in dark spirits

They do exactly what they were designed for with each grade. When we filter a product, we test from beginning to middle to end and test for clarity, quality and consistency throughout.

and liqueurs. These colorings have a net negative charge for stability with tannins and have a proven record for stability in the bottle over a wide range of ingredients and conditions. Bottle stability is important, as incompatible colorings can react with constituents in the spirit or

liqueur to form an irreversible precipitant. Colorings also range in levels of alcohol solubility. High levels of alcohol may result in a reversable precipitant once the alcohol solubility has been exceeded; however, this precipitant will typically go back into solution once the alcohol level is reduced by dilution. Stability testing is recommended when colorings are evaluated. DDW caramel colorings are available through Gusmer in various pack sizes and concentrations.

• P lace a quick acting check valve at the housing outlet to avoid integrity breaches that can be caused by backpressure • D ouble check that all cartridge gaskets are in place and in good condition to ensure optimal sealing • If filter life is not fully exhausted by a single filtration, DO NOT remove used filters from the housing for storage between uses. Instead, used filters can be stored IN the housing for short term periods by following these steps: - Shut Down: After completion of the filtration cycle, sanitize the filters with the same method used to prepare the filters (i.e. steam or hot water flush) - S torage: Drain the housing, apply 2 psi gas pressure (i.e. CO 2 , nitrogen) while the housing is still warm (to avoid a vacuum upon cooling) and close all ports - R estart: When restarting for another filtration cycle, repeat the sanitization procedure just as you would for normal filter preparation
