Ecobrau before and after

Case Study: Ecobrau eco-friendly cleaning at Moot Brew Co

Ecobrau is an all-in-one, eco-friendly cleaning product, specially designed for the daily cleaning of microbrewery equipment. Effective and easy to use, Ecobrau is an enzyme-based, powdered detergent rather than a traditional caustic-based cleaning solution.

Non-hazardous and non-corrosive, Ecobrau is proving popular with brewers not only for its green credentials but also because the all-in-one detergent can cut costs, working on biofilms as well as all the organic residues encountered during the production of beer.

We asked Calvin, head brewer at Moot Brew Co in Kent, for his feedback on using Ecobrau  – and you can read his review below.


- Ecobrau cleans colder, so is more energy efficient
- it doesn’t get used up in the clean so can perform five cleans with one shot
- it’s safer to use with soft metal
- it’s not affected by CO2 carbonation
- and is better for the environment, with waste perfectly safe even on reed beds.

But what were the experiences of a brewer in the frontline using eco-friendly Ecobrau in place of a caustic-based cleaning solution? Over to Calvin at Moot Brew…

“We are a 5bbl microbrewery based on Court Farm, Upper Halling near Rochester in Kent. It is a regenerative farm and we work closely with the farmer recycling our waste back into the farm. The majority of our brewery and taproom build was from recycled materials. Our waste water will be reused for spraying crops. Our cardboard is used under the cattle's straw so they dig it into the earth so it composts. Our spent grain, hops and yeast are all mixed in with the farm's compost so it can be used as fertiliser.  Alongside all of this, we seek innovative methods and products to minimise our impact on the environment. This is why we use Ecobrau for the majority of our deep cleaning instead of Caustic.”

As for the cleaning results, Calvin’s before and after images speak for themselves…
