Equipment Refresh
Every now and then it's good to take a look at your brewing equipment and replace any bits that are getting a bit old or a bit over used with fresh new equipment.
Even with thorough cleaning and sanitising, over time plastic like fermenters and syphons can build up an invisible layer on their surface called a biofilm. This biofilm can be a home for lots of bacteria. If you have had an infection when brewing, then it's time for new equipment, so here's a selection of the types of equipment you might want to think of updating...
Buy a new fermenting bucket
Plastic Fermenting Buckets should be replaced about every 5 years depending on use and storage.
Buy A New Fermenter
Buy A New Syphon
Syphons are hard to clean, so any signs of black spots in the tube means it needs replacing.
Buy A New Syphon
Buy New Seals
Seals and O rings over time can begin to perish and allow gas to escape, so if your keg is loosing pressure, it might be time to replace your seals.
Buy New Seals
Buy A New Bottle Brush
Bottle Brushes can harbour bacteria even when left in steriliser for 24 hours. So it's always a good idea to replace these regularly & sterilise your bottles before filling.
Buy A New Bottle Brush
Buy A New Straining Bag
Straining Bags begin to loose their structural integrity after being cooked, boiled, squeezed, straining and sterilised. It's good practice to replace them regularly.
Buy A New Straining Bag
Buy New Airlocks & Bungs
Airlocks can get bunged up during vigorous fermentations and Bungs become hard and so dont give a good seal, so replace them every few years.
Buy New Airlocks & Bungs
Buy A New Tap
Taps are also prone to a biofilm, so it is good practice to remove them and soak in steriliser. The insides aren't the easiest to clean, sometimes they (and the washer) needs renewing.
Buy A New Tap
Buy A New Little Bottler
Bottling Wands can be a pain to clean like syphons, so if you see a build up inside the tubes and sterilising wont clear it, then it's time for a new one.
