All the steps of the bottling beer process
Bottling beer involves a series of steps that must be followed to make sure that the end product is safe and of high quality. It is a process that requires great expertise considering a large number of people consuming the product. Some of these steps include:
It is the first step in bottling beer and involves the removal of bottles from the original pallet packaging from the manufacturer. After the removal, the bottles are rinsed using filtered water, air or oxygen to aid in reducing the amount of oxygen in them, thus making them ready for process.
Bottling beer: filling
It is the second stage in bottling beer. Refiling of the bottle with beer depend on the type of the beer bottling machine: the capacity of the bottles that the machine can accommodate and the speed at which the filler can fill the bottles. After depalletization, the bottles are loaded into the beer bottling machine. At this stage, the beer bottles are filled with beer and then some amount of inert gases.
Bottling beer also involves the capping process whereby the already filled bottles are run through a capping machine that seals the bottles with the cap. This capping process is also dependent on the type of the beer filling machine. If the filling machine has a high speed with a large capacity of bottles, then the capping machine will also have the same feature. However in some bottling beer processes, the bottles are sealed with a cork and bottle cage.
Bottling beer also involves bear labelling. In this process, the already packed and sealed beer bottles are run through a labelling machine, called the labeller. This process is vital since it ensure that all the bottles have the date of manufacture and expiry, which is a requirement for all manufacturers by the standardisation organ of any state, to ensure that the health of the citizens is safeguarded.
The process of bottling beer is then concluded by the packaging of the certified beer bottles into the crates or cartons for transportation to the store or market, ready for consumption or exportation to foreign countries.
