Youngs Protafloc Tablets (10s)

Protafloc tablets are a tabletted carrageenan product which is added to the wort in the kettle to enhance protein removal as the wort cools.
The active ingredient in Protafloc tablets is a polysaccharide called carrageenan which is derived from seaweed. Carrageenan in solution is
negatively charged, owing to the sulphate groups along the polysaccharide backbone. It is these charged sites which interact with wort proteins.
 
Protafloc tablets should be added to the kettle ten minutes prior to the end of the boil. The addition time reflects the length of time required to dissolve and disperse the carrageenan into the wort. Should Protafloc tablets be added early in the boil, then degradation of the polymer may occur and product efficiency is lost.
 
Benefits:
  • Natural product which removes substantial quantities of haze forming material without affecting head retention
  • Produces brighter worts, reducing the amount of finings required later
  • Increases rate of fermentation and attenuation
  • Increases filter runs
  • Prolongs shelf life in small pack beers
  • Reduces process time
  • Is a processing aid not an additive so doesn’t require label declaration
  • Reduced tank losses
  • 5-10% more efficient than competitive products
  • Tabletted for easy use

Excellent customer service

When into store backend of lockdown looking to upgrade my air still to the T500 wanted advice before taking the plunge. Both the guys on the counter was so helpful and went through everything that I needed. This store is about 30 miles away from me and I have to pass at least 2 other shops but it’s worth the hour trip each way. Keep up the service making your customers feel valued 10/10 (May 16 2021, 18:22 PM)

Excellent service

Never let me down. Fantastic service, extremely friendly and knowledgeable. Brilliant during lockdown ( and before). Drive from
North Nottinghamshire to Derbyshire every time rather than buy on internet, well worth it. Thanks guys.
