The four key components to the beer line cleaning process that determine the level of hygiene achieved as specified by the major breweries:
- Chemical Contact Time with Beer Lines – Laboratory research indicates beer line cleaning should be conducted for an minimum of two hours. deviation from this minimum contact time, may cause inconsistent results.
- Frequency of Beer Line Cleans – Beer lines should be carried out once a week to ensure clean beer lines, this is paramount for warmer regions.
