To achieve certified gluten-free status Brass Castle Brewery use a Murphy & Son enzyme product called 'Brewers Clarex' - added in a tiny amount during fermentation. Marvellously, it contains an enzyme isolated from a self-cloned strain of the mould Aspergillus niger. Some breweries use it to reduce protein haze; but a lovely side-effect is a reduction in dissolved gluten. Their certified gluten-free beers are tested through Brewlab, Sunderland, using the competitive ELISA testing protocol.
