As part of our campaign to advance working safely with hazardous substances, NicheSolutions have launched a range of safety wear for the brewhouse
Our easy-to-locate wall-mounted safety eye-glass station comes with 5 pairs of clear safety glasses that meet the standards of EN 166-2001. Each pair comes in its own protective packaging, priced at just £25 ex Vat inc P&P.
Check out the other must-have items in our growing range of equipment and accessories designed with your safety in mind – including colour-coded dispensing accessories, many of which appear on the safety sheet guidelines for our hygiene and cleaning solutions.
“Thanks for coming down yesterday, we all found it very valuable and are putting your recommendations into play as we speak.” – Tom, Mondo Brewing Co.
Mondo Brewing Co. in Battersea is one of many UK breweries that have recently made the switch to NicheSolutions’ premium, low-cost cleaning & hygiene products – saving themselves time, effort and money.
Here at Niche, we don’t just sell you 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). We’re always here to help, answering any questions you may have on usage, safety and economy.
To reap the maximum benefit and full value of our after-sales service, why not do like Mondo and arrange for our micriobiologist Paul Browning to run a chemicals training day?
Alternatively, Paul can make a site visit to help you to clean efficiently and to hit higher standards, to check spray heads and for biofilm, to rethink rinse times and legacy practices. This can help towards your official SALSA accreditation.
At Cambridge’s Moonshine Brewery, head brewer Mark uses our Trent Fermo-Ale Yeast in three of his top brews.
Award-winning Night Watch porter uses five types of malts, four varieties of hops and locally produced honey along with Trent Fermo-Ale Yeast to produce a rounded sweet-starting, dry-finishing old-style porter. Black Hole is a full bodied stout with a complex malt profile. The roasted flavours are rich, smooth and long-lasting. And Centennial is a superb single-hopped ale.
Mark recommends premium Trent Fermo-Ale Yeast – “It goes off like a good ‘un,” he says – and is impossible to tell apart from popular strains of yeast which can cost twice as much.
Why not give our premium Trent Fermo-Ale, AY4 and AY5 yeasts a go? Just ask for a free sample when you’re making your next order.
At Upham Brewery, on the South Downs near Winchester, head brewer Robert Dupre uses premium AY4 yeast to brew his hugely popular core beers, Punter and Tipster.
“I’m using it,” says Rob, “and I love it.”
Punter is a light amber best bitter with a sweet, floral hop aroma. The flavour is a perfect balance of malt and fruitiness, while the light golden bitter Tipster is dry hopped and has more citrus notes.
Ever more brewers are switching to our premium AY4, AY5 and Trent Ale Yeast, which are impossible to tell apart from other premium strains which cost up to twice as much.
Why not ask for a free sample when you place your next order?
We’re pleased to announce a new generation of Niche filler stands, designed to save brewers yet more time, money and hassle.
The new model includes an easy-to-switch plate enabling you to fill both KeyKegs and KegStar – all with the same frame.
Our stainless steel keg fillers are available in single or double models – either stand only or with a choice of gas or electric pump. All pipework and fittings included.
Balancing kegs and KeyKegs on chairs and tables and spilling gallons of your latest brew on the brewery floor is just so last year! The new Niche keg filler is faster, safer, and no waste.
Phone 01604 879831 for a free demo.
Our stainless steel KeyKeg fillers are available in single or double models – either stand only or complete with filling coupler (choice of gas or electric pump), all pipework and fittings.
Balancing KeyKegs on chairs and tables and spilling gallons of your latest brew on the brewery floor is just so last year!
Don’t get left behind by Chris at the Triple fff Brewery in Hampshire, who has just installed a smart new single stand with an electric pump.
There’s no need to gaze enviously in the direction of Loch Lomond, and the Fyne Ales Brewery, where Malcolm is now using a slick new double filler.
A big thanks goes out to KeyKeg for helping us promote our special filler stands. Here’s KeyKeg’s Jan Grit (based in Den Helder) and David Verhaeghan (area sales for Belgium) putting a double filler frame though its paces at Beer X 2018.
Endozym is a brand-new clarification aid from NicheSolutions, which boasts the dual attraction of removing gluten content – making your beers available to coeliacs and anyone who suffers from a gluten allergy.
It’s a fast-growing market, and every brewery should consider offering at least one beer for absolutely everyone to enjoy. Endozym comes in liquid form, making it easier to use and correctly dose your brew.
What’s more, Niche offer a service to provide you with a gluten-free certificate showing that your beer’s gluten content is well below the required 20 parts per million. The accreditation from Synlab means you can then add ‘gluten-free’ branding and details to your beer’s label. And your first gluten test is free!
Congratulations to Hornes Brewery in Bow Brickhill, Bucks, and Leicester’s Framework Brewery, whose new Ryestone ale and Jackpin pale ale recently obtained gluten-free certificates. Cheers!
At Derventio Brewery in Derbyshire’s delightful Darley Dale, they use NicheSolutions’ premium AY4 yeast to brew a number of their finest ales.
King’s Club ale, Eagle porter and Barbarian stout are all available in cask and bottle. The Barbarian is our recommended tipple – a rich stout with flavours of chocolate, liquorice and coffee.
The next best thing to relaxing with a pint on the banks of the Derwent is to win one of these superb Derventio Brewery shirts/T-shirts – just click along to our Twitter page to enter for free!
Derventio brewer John says: “AY4 yeast is working as well, if not better, than our previous dried yeast – and at £26 a pack it makes great savings.”
It’s impossible to tell the difference between our premium yeasts and those brands and strains which cost over twice as much!
Here at NicheSolutions, we make no charge for the containers when we sell our popular brewery cleaning and hygiene aids such as Percid 5, Hypoquest, Causgleam, and many more.
We even collect your empties for free, 32 to a pallet, and recycle them to make into road cones – working with you, our customers, to keep our environmental impact to a minimum.
What’s more, the money we make from recycling plastic containers is donated on your behalf direct to the British Heart Foundation.
So please do remember to return all of your empty containers – let’s move together to minimise the brewing industry’s carbon footprint, and support Britain’s number 1 heart charity!
We asked Sean at the Pig & Porter Brewing Co. in Tunbridge Wells which of the brewery’s wide range of distinctive beers is brewed with our premium AY4 and AY5 yeast.
“Out of the core range, the Skylarking session IPA is brewed with AY4 for keg and cask,” Sean said. “Then among our specials – seasonal beers and collaborations – there’s Whispering Bob [a 6.5% American IPA], brewed using AY5 for keg and can. And likewise Red Spider [5.5% rye beer], for cask and can.”
Check out the full range of fantastic beers on the Pig & Porter website, and do give them a try because Sean’s “on a mission to share our beers with everyone who wants to drink better!” Like it says on the website, “Pig and Porter is a passion born of necessity, nurtured in a shed, fuelled by belief and fulfilled by the creation of beers that we love.”
