Processing

We are happy to help process your product and can accept ‘bright’ or ‘rough’ beer. This flexibility means we can offer a variety of options for you and your product.

Part of our processing option includes the ability to offer cold conditioning. We can sterile filter bright beer to enhance your product’s natural stability and offer carbonation of product and stabilization.

Recent investment within our brewery means your beer can be filtered using our state of the art technology in terms of cross flow filtration.

Additions of ingredients and flavorings can be made pre and post filter with an ingredients tank available for additions such as honey.

Our experience and processing of our own products means we are able to offer bottle conditioned products with the addition of yeast post filter.
