Regular beer line cleaning and maintenance is essential for serving a quality product and minimizing wastage. The following information is taken from the Draught Quality Manual, produced by the Brewer's Association.
In addition to alcohol and carbon dioxide, finished beer contains proteins carbohydrates and hundreds of other organic compounds. Yeast and bacteria routinely enter draught systems where they feed on beer and attach to draught lines. Minerals also precipitate from beer leaving deposits in lines
Within days of installing a brand new draught system, deposits begin to build up on the beer contact surfaces. Without proper cleaning, these deposits soon affect beer
flavor and undermine the system’s ability to pour quality beer.
When draught systems are properly serviced using the right solutions and procedures outlined in the Draught Beer Quality Manual, line cleaning prevents the build up of organic material and mineral deposits while eliminating flavor changing
microbes. Thus, a well-designed and diligently executed maintenance plan ensures trouble free draught system operation and fresh, flavorful beer.
