The importance of professional packaging

Micro brewing is a becoming all over the world more and more popular as a professional activity. However, many microbreweries still underestimate the importance of using professional micro brewing equipment to make beer, as a choice of quality and safety.

We dedicate this page to the solutions for beer packaging: the last and conclusive step of beer making. Even in small micro breweries, the right machine can be a convenient investment to save time, improve quality and hygiene, preserve taste, and definitely bring your business to the professional level.

Let’s take a look!

Micro brewery equipment: the importance of a professional machine

Why should you include a professional packaging system in your micro brewing equipment? There are many reasons:

Hygiene

One of the most important purposes of micro brewing equipment is the protection of the beer from external agents that could damage the liquid. The packaging system makes no exception: a professional machine can package the beer in a protected environment that prevents any contamination of the product. In addition, it must be considered that it is uncommon, for a microbrewery, to pasteurize or filter the beer to the point of removing all the microorganisms that live in the liquid. Therefore, the packaging system should perform a process that is called oxygen pick up, in order to prevent the oxidation of the beer and the consequent proliferation of dangerous agents in the liquid. Only a professional packaging system can carry out the pick up, scattering the oxygen from the top of the beer while pouring it into bottles, kegs or cans. Consider this reason when choosing the machines to include in your micro brewing equipment.

Productivity

Speed and accuracy are the qualities of professional micro brewing equipment. Even if you are a small industry, the loss of time and money is a problem that you cannot afford: a professional packaging system prevents any waste of the product while processing it, thanks to the many precautions studied to save even the smallest drop of beer. At the same time, a professional system can speed up the process of bottling, canning or kegging, increasing the productivity of your business.

Endurance

Any home-made micro brewing equipment can easily break. Imagine the damage on the beer if a system breaks down during the processing of the product! A professional packaging system is designed and created to last for years, granting the same quality and speed over time. Ensure that the machinery is realized with stainless steel, an alloy known for its resistance and hygiene.
