6 Pediococcus - Small round shaped bacteria (cocci) This bacteria forms acid and diacetyl. Lactobacillus - Long rod shaped bacteria (bacilli). This bacteria forms lactic acid which can cause the beer to turn very cloudy and taste and smell like sour milk. Acetobacter - Short stubby shaped bacteria (bacilli). This bacteria produces acetic acid, it will form a skin/film on the beer surface and cause the beer to turn cloudy and taste like vinegar. Quality Assurance Lactobacillus Acetobacter Pediococcus Bacteria That Build Up & Destroy Beer Flavor and Profits

11 Caustic chemical can cause a rapid increase in temperature. Line cleaning involves working with hazardous chemicals. Cleaning personnel should be well trained in handling hazardous chemicals. Personal protection equipment including rubber gloves and eye protection should be used whenever handling line cleaning chemicals. Cleaning solution suppliers offer Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) on their products (read them prior to use). When diluting chemical concentrate, always add chemical to water and never add water to the chemical. Adding water to concentrated caustic can lead to a violent and dangerous spattering or eruption of the solution. Safety

15 Cleaning Recommendations (continued) Quarterly Cleaning (every three months): –Disassemble and hand clean all FOB devices (beer savers) –Disassemble and hand clean all faucets & couplers –Perform acid cleaning on draught lines as follows: Push beer or caustic cleaner from lines with cold water Clean lines with acid line cleaner mixed to manufacturers guidelines Maintain a solution temperature of 80°-125°F Circulate the acid solution through the lines for 15 minutes with an electric pump or let stand in the lines for no less than 20 minutes for static cleaning Flush lines with cold water until pH matches that of tap water

25 “Quality in a product or service is not what the supplier puts in. It is what the customer gets out and is willing to pay for. A product is not quality because it is hard to make and costs a lot of money, as manufacturers typically believe. This is incompetence. Customers pay only for what is of use to them and gives them value. Nothing else constitutes quality.” Peter F. Drucker - American Educator and Writer b. 1909
