A fresh perspective on sterile filtration

All brewers want their beers to be full of flavour and look visually appealing and if beer is to survive for more than a few days once packaged, then focus and attention must be given to controlling microbiological activity. Traditionally this has been achieved using flash pasteurisation however, this has been shown to be damaging to beer quality.

There is however, an alternative: Sterile filtration (or cold stabilisation) is a proven, modern and more effective solution which can remove all microbial hazards while protecting the flavour, quality, shelf-life and appearance of your finished beer.

This webinar will compare the operational cost (OPEX) of flash pasteurisation against sterile filtration in like for like conditions. Four main areas where OPEX savings can be realised are beer losses, water consumption, energy consumption and consumable spend and these will be discussed in detail.

Register for this webinar today to learn how to protect the flavour of your beer at the lowest possible cost.
