Welcome to Right Beer Solutions.

For many years now, the beer industry has been heavily involved in training of OH&S procedures in venues on how best to handle the very dangerous pH14 beer line cleaning caustics. The harsh reality is these chemicals will inflict permanent injury if the safe practices are not acutely followed on every single occasion.

The safest and surest method is to use a safer product and system.

Our DIY solution is the safest beer line cleaning solution, it uses a safer product and you clean less often which in itself minimises the ‘risk opportunities’.

All without affecting tap beer quality… in fact we have proven to provide exceptional tap beer quality. Our numerous Case Studies have verified that we have provided consistently better tap beer quality after 6 weeks than the venues were achieving previously with fortnightly cleaning.

What would consistently better tap quality do for your business?

And, what if we said that our solution is cashflow positive, if you’re cleaning weekly or fortnightly?

Add to that, you can dramatically improve your OH&S practices, using a highly effective multi-enzymatic cleaner, which is safe to handle and proven to perform.

Plus, we have a range of guides & recommendations that can be shared with your venue staff and we offer a cleaning reminder service.

There are many independant laboratory validated tests to prove our system works and a growing list of clients that can vouch for that too.

Please have a look around and let us know if you wish to know more about a modern efficient and safe way to achieve consistently exceptional tap beer.

What is the cause of tap beer spoilage?

Lines require cleaning due to a build-up of organic growth that occurs between line cleans. Beer is a live food source and brewing itself is a science of managing bacterias, in fact many keg beers may even have some counts of bacteria at the time of arrival.

A single bacterial cell is relatively harmless, but that changes when they bind together and form a biofilm. This occurs when the first bacterial cell attaches to the  wall lining, they are social and invite others to join them, a protein substance forms to bind all the bacteria together, this is the formation of a biofilm. It is widely  considered that the adhesive nature of these proteins are of the strongest adhesives known.

The below illustration indicates the cycle of a single cell attaching to the wall and growing into biofilm.

The key to a successful line clean is to remove 100% of all organic matter from the lines at each event, if this doesn’t occur, ‘anchors’ can remain behind, allowing  for prompt reattachment post clean. Factors that influence the success of a line clean are primarily attributed to the cleaning frequency and the quality of the cleaner used.

There has been many developments in beer styles and seasonal brews of recent time, that have varying bacterial activity. Combined with more discerning beer drinkers that have a greater awareness and expectation of exceptional tap beer quality.

Now there is a new and safer way to achieve and maintain exceptional tap beer quality.

Our DIY solution.

Using patented sweeping sonic technology, CellarControl operates 24 / 7 to inhibit bacteria from attaching to the linings of the draught beer system. This drastically reduces the opportunity of bio-film growth and further contamination.

Each beer has an activator wired to a control box, the system only draws 1 amp of power. One activator is attached over the beer line adjacent the keg and can service multiple taps and over large distances.

CellarControl has been independantly validated by NATA endorsed mircobiological laboratory, Eco-Diagnostics. They conducted a longitudinal study comparing a number of venues that had CellarControl installed (cleaning 6 weekly) versus venues that didn’t have CellarControl installed (cleaning fortnightly).

“The testing demonstrates that bacteria and wild yeast levels remained low up until the 6 week clean and verifies the claims made by CellarControl.”

Cleans & Sanitises

Maxi-Enzyme Beer Line Cleaner (MEBLC) is a multi-enzymatic cleaner. This advanced cleaner has been designed to attack the organic molecules found within beer systems.

The Australian designer is a leader within the global healthcare sanitisation sector, and has over 25 years of research and development behind its success.

Biofilm (bacteria) can naturally defend itself from some caustic cleaners. The bacterial layers that hold the bacteria party together can hardened with caustic cleaning, whereby trapping biofilm within ths system. This enzyme formulation attacks the prtoteins protecting the biofilm, allowing it to be easily flushed out.

Enzymatic cleaning – Each enzyme targets its own substrate, this results in the removal of the layers comprising and protecting the biofilm.

This illustration depicts what biofilm attached to the lining of a beer system may look like and how the multi-enzymes get to work.

Certified.

“HACCP Certified as food-safe and suitable for cleaning and sanitising food and beverage equipment…”

Maxi-Enzyme BLC is the only HACCP Certified beer line cleaner in Australia, that is available to purchase for DIY cleaning purposes.

Validated.

Campden BRI in London (UK) was established in 1919 and has become the foremost provider of scientific support and technical services to the brewing industry worldwide.

Maxi-Enzyme Australia engaged Campden BRI and to the best of our knowledge is the only beer line cleaner in Australia to have carried out this vigorous testing.

Being non-corrosive, Maxi-Enzyme BLC is also fantastic for soaking beer taps and couplers.

Not only very effective, it is very safe. Water based with a near neutral pH in concentrated form and only moves to pH9.2 when diluted with hot water (50°C). It is ‘non-hazardous’ when diluted, is non-corrosive, is not a ‘Dangerous Good ’ and the diluted solution can be disposed down the drain.

Clinical Professor Stephanie Watson from the Sydney Eye Hospital and Save Sight Institute, said many young workers in particular don’t fully understand the dangers of working with chemicals and are unaware of the need to wear protective eyewear. She is calling on eye care professionals to advise their patients on the importance of eye safety.

Alkali is worse than acid because it penetrates the eye, whereas acid sits on the surface,” said Professor Watson.

Alkaline chemicals can be found in most caustic beer line cleaners.
