The importance of cleaning beer equipment:
In the brewing process of beer equipment, in addition to adopting the correct production process, the equipment must also be cleaned correctly and in time, and disinfected and sterilized regularly.

How to clean beer equipment?
Cleaning is to remove the dirt on the surface of tanks, pipes and equipment as much as possible. If the cleaning and sterilization are not complete, the remaining dirt on the inner wall of the equipment and the reproduction of micro organisms will weaken the effect of the fungicide.
Yeast and protein impurities, hops and hop resin compounds, and beer stone, etc., due to static electricity and other factors, these dirt deposits on the surface of the inner wall of the equipment, making the surface of the equipment rough, and providing a habitat for the growth of microbes .
Microbiological colonies must be removed during washing. Because the bactericide is suitable for surface sterilization, it has little effect on the living bacteria inside and is easy to cause re-pollution.
