Cleaning

Why cleaning is so important

Unclean equipment is the main cause of failed brew batches. Simply put, brewing beer starts with proper and thorough cleaning. Proper cleaning is not a one step process, it always includes an alkali cleaner and a final rinse. Correctly cleaned and rinsed equipment will last longer, function properly, and keep off-flavours from contaminating subsequent batches of beer. PBW™ is a concentrated alkali cleaner and is used widely throughout the commercial brewing industry. If used according to the directions, PBW™ will minimise the need to scrub and will best prepare your equipment for the final rinse.

0740The final rinse with Star San™ or Saniclean™ compliments PBW™ to complete the system. You should always perform a final rinse before brewing. When carefully used according to the directions, Star San™ or Saniclean™ will not affect the flavour of your beer.

How long does my Star San™ or Saniclean™ solution remain effective? It all depends upon your water hardness and mineral content. For spray bottle usage we recommend using distilled or reverse osmosis water and storing the bottle in a cool, dark place. When a Star San™ or Saniclean™ solution becomes cloudy or has a pH level above 3.5 pH, it should be discarded and replaced.
