Improving Stability the Easy Way

Beer is one of the most popular alcoholic beverages worldwide. We offer our customers a wide range of products for filtration and stabilization of beer that help to create a beer with reduced polyphenol, haze and (heavy) metal content.

For many consumers, the perfect beer is crystal clear with a firm head. It should also shine brightly and have a pure, fresh taste that lasts until the final sip. Brewers go to great pains to produce a beer like this, especially in the filtration process. However, even after regular filtration, a clear beer contains dissolved phenolic compounds, proteins and metals (copper, iron, etc.) which have a negative impact on clarity, sensory effects and color.

Our products Divergan® and Crosspure® help brewers to remove these compounds during the filtration process while at the same time providing flavor and colloidal stability as well as avoiding metallic bitterness, aging and oxidative changes. These products are eco-efficient single-use and regenerable solutions. Furthermore, they offer safe and easy handling and disposal. BASF also offers potassium metabisulphite to the brewing industry.
