Papain was covalently immobilized on both natural wood chip and cotton without substantial loss of enzymic activity, and its optimum pH was 6–10; optimum temperature, 67°C. The immobilized papain showed high activity for hydrolysis of beer peptide and was used in treatment of beer for 28 days without loss of activity.
