PURE QUALITY

WHAT IS PURE QUALITY

“Well at purity we love our beers and we’re a bit spoiled as we get to taste them in tip-top condition in the brewery. We want our customers to enjoy them that way too. If you follow these tips everyone can enjoy pure quality.”

PAUL HALSEY, PURITY MD

BEER ENVIRONMENT

Purity ales are infact a food product. They should be stored and served under hygenic food standard conditions.

Store cool between 10-12C, all year round.

Use a cellar unit or heating unit to keep this tempreature constant. Keep it clean. Wash down once a week with diluted line cleaner.

Wash down any spillages immediately.

Dont store other foods (meats, vegetables, fruits), in the beer cellar.

EQUIPMENT & HANDLING

All the gear and no idea? Or a good idea but short on gear? Either way if you need support we can help…

Rack all casks onto auto-tilts or gantries on the day of delivery, or as soon as space allows.

Make sure you have enough taps for all your casks.

Clean shive and keystone using diluted line cleaner and brush.

Tap and vent on day of delivery, (within 12 hours)

Use the smallest cask size possible.

Aim to sell one cask per day, and never have a cask on sale for more than three days.

GOOD ROUTINES

Daily:

  • Check cellar temperature.
  • Release pegs of on sale casks.
  • Check condition and taste of on sale casks before putting on sale.
  • Wash down any spillages.
  • Remove taps from finsihed casks, hard peg and seal with corks. Wash taps & store dry.
  • ‘Put casks to bed’ at closing time by switching off taps and sealing with a hard peg.

Weekly:

  • Clean all beers lines a minimum of once every seven days. Establish a routine eg. Thursday.
  • Remove empty casks and kegs. Rack all casks. Store bottles away from caks and kegs.
  • Thoroughly wash and scrub the floor & other soiled surfaces with diluted line cleaner
  • Check ‘Best Before Dates’ on delivery, sell oldest dats first, chalk up preferred order.
