Is there a container charge or a deposit?
No, we do not charge for containers. We collect and recycle containers on a regular basis.
Every brewer will probably know when and where to use products such as Causgleam Plus (caustic, for brewhouse cleaning in place), Hypoquest (chlorine and caustic based, for fermenting vessels and conditioning tanks) and Percid 5 (peracetic acid-based rinse). But do you know…
— How much to dilute Percid 5 (5% peracetic acid) to attain the recommended strength of 0.5% v/v? You’re aiming for 250ppm paa, and using any more can be wasteful.
— How to remove beerstone quickly and effectively with Phosgel?
— How much 0.5% Perostat to add to Causgleam to remove stubborn soils such as tannin?
We’re always here to help with any product queries. We can help you to clean efficiently and to hit higher standards, to check spray heads and for biofilm, to rethink rinse times and legacy practices. Best of all, we can arrange for our micriobiologist Paul Browning to make a site visit and even run a staff chemicals training day. This can help towards your official SALSA accreditation – and the full value of our after-sales service.
“The NicheSolutions trainer was very capable in this field, and we all got a lot out of it,” commented Lee, the head brewer at Brew York. “Overall, a brilliant service.”
Over the past few years, more and more breweries have been switching to Brausol P Special.
The silica-based clarification aid clearly gives results comparable to traditional finings – with the added benefits that it’s cheaper, has a longer shelf life and is vegetarian/vegan-friendly. No fishy ingredients.
Sunderland’s highly respected Brewlab Training and Analysis asked if they could put Brausol to the test, to see how it faired in a direct laboratory comparison against finings. And the test results were eye-opening, to say the least!
Over to Keith Thomas, director of Brewlab: “Non-gluten beers were selected for testing after primary fermentation when attenuation was complete and before primary settlement of yeast.”
“Initial settlement after 23 hours indicated a clear difference in OD with little difference between isinglass, auxillary and Brausol samples.”
“Brausol was comparable or better than isinglass or auxillary on the primary settlement at 70μl and 350μl doses.”
This is perfect for racking, kegging or bottling clarified beer. Brewlab did note that when the beer was unsettled in cask, traditional finings worked better on the resuspension.
