Cleaning Chemicals & Equipment

Using good cleaners and sanitizers can be the difference between a great beer and a spoiled batch. Cleaning equipment is a chore that must be done several times for every batch of beer. Yet it is arguably the most important aspect of brewing; without good sanitizing, it is impossible to make good beer. The cleaning chemicals and equipment we sell are time-tested and trustworthy; we use these ourselves, for every batch we make.

Cleaners

Cleansers remove surface grime and particulates. Cleansers are essential to allow sanitizers to do their job. You can’t sanitize a surface if it’s not clean of grime and debris, which is where cleansers come in. These products should be used on bottles, fermentors, and other equipment which has extended contact with beer. Cleansers should be rinsed after use. Don’t soak your equipment in a cleanser solution for longer than the time recommended on the packaging.

Sanitizers

These kill microbes and surface bacteria and make equipment safe to use with beer. Arguably the most important component of the brewing process. Without sanitizers beer would be full of other organisms that turn beer sour and undrinkable. A key feature of these sanitizers is that they’re “no-rinse” so your equipment can be soaked in sanitizer and then immediately used for brewing which reduces any risk for re-contamination. A note: some sanitizers are not classified as such by the FDA (like Easy Clean and One Step), but for brewing purposes they work as well as those that are. For some reason, many include the word “clean” in the name. However, all the above mentioned products are effective sanitizers.
