Cleaning & Sanitation


Sanitation and cleaning is a very important, but often overlooked step in brewing beer. Brew pots, if left uncleaned, are a haven for bacteria. Even if you are using heat to boil the wort, it is still not enough to kill off the bacterial colony that may have grown within the crevices of your brew pot or other equipment. This is the reason why it is so important to clean and sanitize your brewing equipment.

It is important to define the difference between cleaning and sanitizing. Cleaning involves the removal of dirt and debris, while sanitizing is the process of removing the number of microorganisms present in the crevices of the brewing equipment.

Many home brewers skimp on buying the right cleaning tools and supplies for their home brewing equipment in the aim to save money. As a result, they opt to use generic bleach and cleansers. But what they are forgetting is that while ordinary bleach is effective in cleaning kitchen surfaces, using them to clean your brew pots is very dangerous. (more info below)

There are specific cleaning and sanitizing products that you can use for your home brewing system. A mild dish detergent is acceptable in cleaning brew pots. However, make sure that they are dye-free and perfume-free. You can also use tools like a scrub or brush.

It is always a good practice to clean your brewing equipment as soon as possible. This is to avoid stains and dirt from setting in. The thing is, that when dirt in the form of yeast and sugar attach onto the surface of your brewing equipment, they become very difficult to remove once they have been allowed to dry.

Here at Ontario Beer Kegs, we have a wide variety of cleaners and sanitizers that you can use to clean your brewing equipment. Our products include carboy washers, bottle brushes and a variety of safe cleansers. We also have specialized cleaning kits and pumps so that you can achieve thorough cleaning.
