Streamlining Craft Brewing and Improving Microbrewery Production
Beer quality is a top priority for producers and consumers. The craft brewing process must meet high standards for preserving the unmistakable taste, flavor, purity and freshness of a brew. Creating that unique taste and maintaining uniformity of flavor from bottle to bottle, brewery to brewery and brand to brand requires delicate precision.
Filtration plays an important role in ensuring the success of micro – and craft breweries. Applying the right type of clarification is as important as the cold microbial control of product and used media. Pall provides specially developed solutions, which add value to the the beer process to maintain the freshness and stability over time.
Although many craft beer drinkers recognize that a hazy beer doesn’t mean poor quality, there are consumers who make this assumption. For brewers who require a wider distribution, combined with longer shelf life demands and all those who want to produce a consistent clear-looking beer, a clarification step should be implemented.
The microbial stability of craft beer can be compromised at an early stage in the brewing process. Spoilage detection can often be labor intensive and lengthen time to product release. Or if undetected, a recall can damage the brand. Pall’s GeneDisc® rapid microorganism detection system can help identify contamination with reliable test results in as little as two hours.

Essential to the process is the final filtration stage. The brewing process is sensitive to beer spoiling microorganism which can ruin the taste and occurrence for your consumers. Final filtration plays an important role in product quality and can prevent any harmful contaminants from making it through to the final product.
Service Filtration gas and water supply
Utility fluids such as water, air, steam and other gases support the manufacturing processes and represent the basic building blocks to create product or enable plant operations. Securing the quality of utilities based on their end use requirements is a good manufacturing approach which proactively eliminates problems, safeguards the process, and allows brewers to focus on the larger challenges they face. Pall Corporation can help our customers with these basics.
Integrity testing helps to ensure quality. Performed before or after filtration without affecting the filter itself, the integrity tests provides the confidence that the final membrane filters are operating as expected.
