Endozym is a brand-new clarification aid from NicheSolutions, which boasts the dual attraction of removing gluten content – making your beers available to coeliacs and anyone who suffers from a gluten allergy.
It’s a fast-growing market, and every brewery should consider offering at least one beer for absolutely everyone to enjoy. Endozym comes in liquid form, making it easier to use and correctly dose your brew.
What’s more, Niche offer a service to provide you with a gluten-free certificate showing that your beer’s gluten content is well below the required 20 parts per million. The accreditation from Synlab means you can then add ‘gluten-free’ branding and details to your beer’s label. And your first gluten test is free!
Congratulations to Hornes Brewery in Bow Brickhill, Bucks, and Leicester’s Framework Brewery, whose new Ryestone ale and Jackpin pale ale recently obtained gluten-free certificates. Cheers!
At Derventio Brewery in Derbyshire’s delightful Darley Dale, they use NicheSolutions’ premium AY4 yeast to brew a number of their finest ales.
King’s Club ale, Eagle porter and Barbarian stout are all available in cask and bottle. The Barbarian is our recommended tipple – a rich stout with flavours of chocolate, liquorice and coffee.
The next best thing to relaxing with a pint on the banks of the Derwent is to win one of these superb Derventio Brewery shirts/T-shirts – just click along to our Twitter page to enter for free!
Derventio brewer John says: “AY4 yeast is working as well, if not better, than our previous dried yeast – and at £26 a pack it makes great savings.”
It’s impossible to tell the difference between our premium yeasts and those brands and strains which cost over twice as much!
Here at NicheSolutions, we make no charge for the containers when we sell our popular brewery cleaning and hygiene aids such as Percid 5, Hypoquest, Causgleam, and many more.
We even collect your empties for free, 32 to a pallet, and recycle them to make into road cones – working with you, our customers, to keep our environmental impact to a minimum.
What’s more, the money we make from recycling plastic containers is donated on your behalf direct to the British Heart Foundation.
So please do remember to return all of your empty containers – let’s move together to minimise the brewing industry’s carbon footprint, and support Britain’s number 1 heart charity!
We asked Sean at the Pig & Porter Brewing Co. in Tunbridge Wells which of the brewery’s wide range of distinctive beers is brewed with our premium AY4 and AY5 yeast.
“Out of the core range, the Skylarking session IPA is brewed with AY4 for keg and cask,” Sean said. “Then among our specials – seasonal beers and collaborations – there’s Whispering Bob [a 6.5% American IPA], brewed using AY5 for keg and can. And likewise Red Spider [5.5% rye beer], for cask and can.”
Check out the full range of fantastic beers on the Pig & Porter website, and do give them a try because Sean’s “on a mission to share our beers with everyone who wants to drink better!” Like it says on the website, “Pig and Porter is a passion born of necessity, nurtured in a shed, fuelled by belief and fulfilled by the creation of beers that we love.”

Yet another of our greatest hits at Beer X last week was the brand new range of colour-coded dispensing accessories, many of which appear on the safety sheet guidelines for our cleaning chemicals.
After seeing them in action at the show, Julia from Tyne Bank Brewery made the impulse decision to buy.four pumps and two bunds – now only £125 for the set!
Andrew from Three Hills Brewing in Northamptonshire purchased the same set for his forthcoming audit – and Grantham’s Brewster’s Brewery were yet another to go for the four-and-two combination, saving money against the price of two pumps and one bund for £65.00.
Look out for our new colour-coded lids and stickers on products which match up to colour-coded siphons and chemical bunds, plus safety wear including gauntets, gloves, visors, glasses, masks and aprons. Different classes of potentially hazardous chemicals will be neatly coded for use with siphons tagged the same colour.
Play it safe, and top up your next order with these low-cost essentials.
Free samples of our premium AY4 and AY5 yeast were flying off the stand at Beer X last week, with over 40 packets of each taken by brewers to trial against their existing yeasts.
With prices at £26.00 per pack and feedback from other brewers being 100% positive to date, it was a deal not to be passed by the Peerless Brewing Company of Birkenhead.
A special thanks to Peerless for their confidence in our premium, innovative and money-saving products – snapping up a further three packs to go with their freebie.
It’s still not too late for any brewery to test out the goods – just ask for a free sample next time you place an order!
Of all the products and services showcased at Beer X, we had special success with our popular demonstrations of KeyKeg filler stands.
They really are a must-have accessory for any brewer who uses keykegs, and we had countless comments along the lines of “What did we ever do before we saw / heard of / bought our filler stand”!
John from Sheffield’s Abbeydale Brewery was one impulse buyer, closely followed by David of the Beer Works in Driffield, East Yorkshire. “It was great to meet the team from NicheSolutions,” David added. “And thanks for the free samples of AY4 and AY5 yeast!”
A purpose-built keykeg-filling stand from NicheSolutions is guaranteed to make the whole process faster, safer and less wasteful. Give us a call and ask about single- and double-header keykeg fillers today. And claim your free yeast sample while you’re about it!
Come along to Stand 119 at Beer X this afternoon, and learn all about the benefits of brewing vegetarian-friendly beer using Brausol P Special – as explained here to the First and Last Brewery team by Paul and Paul from NicheSolutions.
Did you know the silica-based clarification aid clearly gives results comparable to traditional finings? Did you know it’s cheaper, has a longer shelf life and is vegan-friendly. No fishy ingredients.
Sunderland’s highly respected Brewlab Training and Analysis asked if they could put Brausol to the test, to see how it faired in a direct laboratory comparison against finings. And the test results were eye-opening, to say the least! Over to Keith Thomas, director of Brewlab: “Non-gluten beers were selected for testing after primary fermentation when attenuation was complete and before primary settlement of yeast.”
“Initial settlement after 23 hours indicated a clear difference in OD with little difference between isinglass, auxillary and Brausol samples.”
“Brausol was comparable or better than isinglass or auxillary on the primary settlement at 70μl and 350μl doses.”
This is perfect for racking, kegging or bottling clarified beer. Brewlab did note that when the beer was unsettled in cask, traditional finings worked better on the resuspension.
All day long at Beer X in Liverpool, members of the Niche team are busily demonstrating keykeg filler stands, explaining the glories of innovative new enzymes and showing brewers how they can improve their beer and save money along the way with our premium yeast, clarifying aids, hygiene products – and much more.
Even so, it’s a great feeling when a product showcase hits the spot instantly, resulting in a glorious impulse exhibition buy!
Here’s John, director at Sheffield’s Abbeydale Brewery, giving in to the sheer irresistible logic of a keykeg stand. There’ll be no more struggling behind the scenes at Abbeydale – labouring to fill keykegs by balancing them on casks or boxes, or improvising with a couple of chairs…
A purpose-built keykeg-filling stand from NicheSolutions is guaranteed to make the whole process faster, safer and less wasteful. Give us a call (or just drop in at Stand 119) and ask about single- and double-header keykeg fillers today!
