Boring? Yes. Essential? 'Fraid so. Cleaning and sanitising are the two most important things you can do to make your beer taste good. It just doesn't make for catchy headlines
Yeast is king. It’s what is making your beer. We love it, and we want it to be happy. We don’t want to upset it in any way. We don’t want anything to compete with it, and nothing can stop it. Yeast is our master, and we shall obey it. If we don’t follow its orders, it’ll either give up fermenting or let something take over, like bacteria. We don’t want that. So we clean, vigorously, and sanitise, often.
You must clean well everything that your beer may come in contact with, and just before use, you must sanitise this equipment as well (except the brew kettle). A surface cannot be sanitised until it is clean. If something does not look or smell clean, it probably isn’t.
Cleaning chemicals are very potent, often alkaline chemicals which remove organic deposits. These cleaners need to be thoroughly rinsed after use (unless noted otherwise). Powdered Brewery Wash (PBW) is our favourite.
* We didn't do too badly all things considered?
We have some important and exciting news from our Managing Director, Matt Lane:
Over the last few months, we’ve spent a lot of time speaking to members of our PerfectDraft community about loyalty & rewards.
Something we’re really passionate about is rewarding our most loyal customers and you’ve given us some great feedback and ideas on how we can do this.
We’re now excited to announce the launch of our ‘Spring Rewards’ program.
During pregnancy, it is recommended to a pregnant woman not to eat any raw or semi-cooked food such as meat, fish, cold meats and certain types of cheese. And above all, smoking and drinking alcohol should be stopped.
In recent years, alcohol-free beer has become a real trend in the beer market here in the UK. More and more big beer brands and small craft breweries are starting to brew it to the delight of non-alcoholic drinkers. However, there are many questions about this kind of beer.
We’re back for the second edition of ‘Must Try Kegs’. Last week we spotlighted three fantastic kegs from our MultiTRY range and this week is no different. From a personal favourite lager of mine, to a couple of flavour sensations, take a read through why we think you have to try these three.
