Why a packaging machine is important
In the field of microbreweries and craft breweries, when the choice of the beer equipment comes, the importance of the packaging system is often underestimated. Many businesses, in fact, rely on non-professional equipment or choose to pack their beer elsewhere, renouncing to an investment that could be extremely convenient over time.
Which are the reasons that suggest including a packaging system among your beer equipment?
The first reason to choose a professional packaging system is hygiene: using non-professional tools could end up in the contamination of the beer you are brewing. But it is not only a matter of hygiene: external agents in the beer could considerably spoil the authentic and original taste of the product, reducing dramatically the quality of your beer. However, the most important matter here is safety: as for all the other beer equipment, a home-arranged packaging system could fill your beer with agents dangerous for human health.
The biggest quality of a professional packaging system is speed: including it among your beer equipment will considerably speed up your production, giving you filled and capped bottles, cans or kegs with minimum effort and in no time.
Convenience is a key element when you rely on an external beer-packaging supplier to pack your beer into bottles or cans. In fact, have you ever considered the time and money spent to move the beer from your brewery to the supplier? This is extremely inconvenient even if you produce small quantities of beer. In that case, of course, you can not afford a professional packaging system of your own; but, as soon as your production rises up to the point where you consider to sell your beer outside your brewery, buying a personal packaging equipment is a wise choice, and you should include a professional plant or machine among your beer equipment.
Control is essential as far as any kind of beer equipment is concerned. The packaging machinery is not an exception: having a professional machine lets you control every step of the packaging, from the cleaning to the filling, up to the capping of bottles or cans. Control is important when you want to prevent any waste of beer, any risk of contamination, any problem during the operation, that could potentially spoil months of work. Choose wisely only the beer equipment that you can check at will.
Having your own professional packaging system grants you a wide range of customization possibilities. Thanks to that, you can design your favorite beer packaging and start selling branded bottles or cans of your craft-made beer. Everybody knows that image is extremely important in marketing, as you will be known and recognized through that.
