Packaging; Kegging, Canning and Bottling
We are offering this consultancy package as the fourth step in setting up your microbrewery or pub brewery.
You would have brewed your first beer, fermented and clarified, and carbonated it, ready to put it into a keg, bottle or can.
If you followed all the previous steps (packages 1-3) you would have your beer ready for a longer shelf-life and it will be consistently brewed.
Now you will be ready to package the beer and we will show you how in your brewery.
Now, this is the trickiest part because all your hard work to get it to this stage can be quickly undone if you stop paying particular attention to minimising dissolved oxygen (D.O) in the package! At this stage the greatest amount of D.O can be taken up so this is the lynch pin to high quality!
We will advise what equipment for packaging is suitable and even how to measure the D.O. for peace of mind. Proceduraly, we will show you how to do this properly while reducing beer losses.
We have done this before in breweries we have run and have achieved real shelf life of 12 months. Unheard of in smaller microbreweries in the early 2000's.
This could save you your business because the rest of the brewing community is catching up and you need to stay ahead of the curve.
Recalls are costly as one well know brewer said,
"Recalls are costly and a national recall from Dan Murphy's and Vintage cellars may cost in excess of $12,000, so that would buy me an D.O meter.
You can also do the package on Quality control called Quality Control and Protocols which complements this section really well.
