Brewers discovered that an enzyme called amyloglucosidase could render all the dextrins (fermentable sugars) in beer completely fermentabele The result reduced the beer's carbohydrate content (calories) by using all the sugars, but also raised its alcohol content slightly above that of regular beer in addition, a byproduct of using the enzyme is that it caused the alcohol to be more easily absorbed into the bloodstream.
First, they quickly hydrolyzed the fiber with hot, mild acid; then they quickly cooled it and added a mixture of cellulase and amyloglucosidase enzymes before further hydrolysis.
