The viscosity of brewers condensed solubles (BCS) at 20% solids was reduced by removing suspended solids (7% of total solids) and treating the clarified solution with cellulase or beta-glucanase. Compared to a control of BCS at approximately 65% solids, removal of suspended solids and enzyme treatment reduced viscosity by a factor of 12-15 and 2.5-3.5, respectively. The viscosity of enzyme-thinned BCS (65% solids) was comparable to that of cane molasses (66% solids) or wood molasses (54% solids).
