Clean Lines mean you’re doing what’s best for your customer

In addition to alcohol and carbon dioxide, finished beer contains proteins, carbohydrates and hundreds of other organic compounds. Yeast and bacteria routinely enter draught systems where they feed on beer and attach to draught lines. Minerals also precipitate from beer leaving deposits in lines and fixtures. Within days of installing a brand new draught system, deposits begin to build up on the beer contact surfaces. Without proper cleaning, these deposits soon affect beer flavor and undermine the system’s ability to pour quality beer. When draught systems are properly serviced using the right solutions and procedures outlined in the Draught Beer Quality Manual, line cleaning prevents the buildup of organic material and mineral deposits while eliminating flavor changing microbes. Thus, a well-designed and diligently executed maintenance plan ensures trouble-free draught system operation and fresh, flavorful beer.

Clean lines make you (a LOT) more money

Beer-spoiling bacteria will ruin a beer’s flavor and aroma, and will inevitably lead to lost repeat business and potential sales. While these micro-organisms are not health risks, they will cause buttery off-flavors called diacetyl, or sour and vinegary off flavors called acetic acid. When draught beer systems are not properly cleaned, anaerobic and aerobic micro-organisms like lactobacillus, pediococcus, pectinatus, and acetobacter will begin growing in beer lines and associated equipment. This will also severely shorten the lifespan of your entire draught system, costing you a lot more money in the long run.

Draught Beer quality for retailers

Retailers play a critical role in preserving the great flavor and aroma in beer created by brewers. Great beer in a consumer's glass is no accident — beer must be handled with care at retail. Draught beer systems commonly pour a wide range of brewers’ and suppliers’ beer, so everyone has an interest in keeping great beer great — brewers and wholesalers, but also especially retailers and consumers.
