Reasons for Fresher Beer in Kegs
Beer kegs are currently the most widely used beer storage tools in the market. They are widely used in various industries, especially transportation and storage industry, due to their strong corrosion resistance, high hardness, and strong resistance. Fresh beer fermentation is an important aspect of its application. Wine making requires long-term fermentation, so the fermentor needs to be able to work for a long time and have sufficient pressure resistance to withstand the strong pressure generated during fermentation. The beer tank meets these requirements and has good sealing performance, which can seal the gas inside and prevent fermentation alcohol from overflowing. It is an indispensable equipment in the wine making industry. Additionally, beer kegs are also important devices for storing beer.
Because of their pressure-holding and thermal insulation properties, beer kegs are easy to fill and transport, and can be used in various places. Compared with other forms of beer, they have the advantages of low investment and quick results. The refreshing taste and rich nutritional value of fresh beer have contributed to its market position and development space. A beer preservation keg is specifically designed for storing and transporting fresh beer. In order to ensure the quality of fresh beer and the interests of consumers, the beer kegs in the market need to be regularly sterilized and cleaned. They should be disinfected with hydrogen peroxide every day on a 15-day cycle, and cleaned once every half a month. For beer kegs that have not been cleaned for a long time, they should be soaked in clean water before being sterilized and rinsed.
Anti-corrosion Process of Beer Kegs
Stainless steel has good corrosion resistance, but when welding stainless steel using automatic argon arc welding with temperatures above 1000℃, the welding seam will inevitably be slightly oxidized, and the crystal structure will also undergo certain changes. If the surface is not preserved, chloride ions in water will quickly corrode some sensitive parts of the stainless steel, causing the beer keg to leak and become unusable. Therefore, timely anti-corrosion treatment should be performed on beer kegs to remove carbides from the surface. This will generate a layer of protective film on the surface of the beer keg, playing a role in corrosion prevention and maintenance.
Precautions for Storing Fresh Beer in Beer Kegs
The beer keg is mainly designed for beer brewing, storage, and transportation. When storing fresh beer in beer kegs, the following should be considered:
Fresh beer contains carbon dioxide, which will continue to accumulate if the pressure is insufficient. The exposure to air will oxidize the liquor and negatively impact the taste of the beer.
Fresh beer contains live yeast, and when the temperature increases, the yeast will multiply rapidly, thus compromising the taste and quality of the beer.
Nutrients in fresh beer provide favorable conditions for the growth and reproduction of microorganisms. Even a small amount of microorganisms can significantly shorten the shelf life of the beer.
