Hygiene

In all fermenting rooms, hygiene is more than essential.

He are a few keys to have the best hygients possible.

  • Pitch the wort as soon as possible, once temperature is steady.
  • Use terminal sterility on clean tanks.
  • Always make sure that the wessel valve and outlets are clean, flooding it with detergent.
  • After cleaning the vessels, these should be kept sealed
  • Use a hygienic soak bath to wash your ustensils

For those working on open tanks:

  • If infection is possible from the environment (dust, old buildings, flies) cover the vessel with polythene sheeting secured tightly. Make a few ventilation holes to allow the evacuation of the gas.
  • Do not repitch the yeast, always use a new yeast for your brew
