When choosing a microbrewery and before signing the contract, make sure to examine what is and what is not included in the offer, what services are included at the time of the purchase as well as the time of the commissioning and subsequent operation. Sometimes, in an attempt to provide a lower price, the offer may be in the so-called minimalistic version, which can result in:
– Additional investments
– Uncomfortable operation
– Degradation of beer
– Shortening the service life
– Limitation of the long-term trouble-free operation of the microbrewery
The worst case scenario is to find out, after one or two years of operating the microbrewery and using the sanitation acid and lye solutions, that the stainless material is not of such a quality as it should be and does not last very long, especially in the welds. This often happens with very cheap imported technologies. In this situation, one can use a saying: „Some cheap things are just too expensive“. That is even more true, when talking about a long-term investment. This can be prevented for example by using stainless steel vessels which have a correct certification and documents of origin.
