11 Oct Industry Focus: Safety and Accuracy for Breweries & Distilleries
If your job is to make whiskey or beer, then chances are you have a lot of fans. After all, you basically create celebrations for a living. But we know that a lot goes into your job before the product ever reaches the glass. In fact, there’s a common joke that makers are also chemists, janitors, maintenance experts, and taste testers and it’s true: you wear many hats. With a wide array of responsibilities, it’s important to have the right tools at your disposal to make your job easier and ensure that your high standards are met each and every day.
Consistency with Accu-Pour Pitchers and Measuring Cups
In a brewhouse, there’s plenty to measure before you can get to the fun stuff like final gravity and IBU’s: hops, grains, and more. For distilleries, it’s no different as you begin working with sugars to get to your final result from fermentation, distillation, and aging.
With craft beer or gin, it can be tricky to produce the same taste time and time again. We understand that you and your customers are looking for consistency in your batches, and that’s what precision measuring and pouring help deliver. When it comes to creating the perfect batch, accuracy equals consistency. For growing brands, you might be scaling your recipe up from a smaller system or experimenting with ingredients. It may be tough to acquire the same hops or botanicals as previously used or as you’re tinkering with the perfect recipe.
With so many variables out of your control, measuring and pouring shouldn’t be one of them. At Axiom Products, we have a wide array of pitchers, measuring cups, scoops, and containers designed to provide precise pouring and accurate measurements, both essential in keeping your batches exact each and every time.
Our Accu-Pour measuring products feature debossed markings for easy reading, easy grip handles that provide comfort and stability (even with a gloved hand) and a versatile spout that offers excellent pouring control. Raised graduations will not fade over time and our open-bottom handle allows pitchers to be easily stacked and stored maximizing your limited brewhouse or distillery space. Since we know it’s essential to keep glass away from your production area, all of our products are made of high-quality, durable plastic that is manufactured from a food-grade polypropylene. Another important feature is high chemical resistance which helps prevent cross-contamination.
Whether you’re measuring out juniper berries, yeast, or grains or adding hops to your mash, using the right tools is vital in maintaining a uniform product. Axiom Products are built to withstand the stringent requirements of every brewhouse or craft distillery across the country.
Accu-Tech Safety for Brewing and Distilling
Breweries and distilleries can be risky places to work; hot liquid, chemicals, combustible gases and so much more make for a high-pressure working environment. Our line of Accu-Tech products provides the ultimate in safety gear for you and your team.
Perhaps the most commonly used hazardous chemical used in a brewhouse is caustic. While it is exceptional at breaking down proteins, reducing the chance of spreading unwanted material to future batches of beer, it can also cause burns to the skin and injury if it comes in contact with your eyes. As you deal with the boiling water and alcohol, poisonous heads, delicious hearts, and stinky tails in your distillation process, you need safe, reliable tools at your fingertips.
Axiom Products offers several safety products as part of our Accu-Tech line to help minimize risk while working. Our comfortable yet durable goggles fit over prescription glasses and offer splash protection. Fog-free options mean there is no need to remove them before opening your mash tun or spraying hot water while cleaning.
Axiom’s Accu-Tech gloves are made strong and chemical resistant. They prevent snags, punctures, abrasions, and cuts – keeping you safe from caustic and other dangerous chemicals you have to handle as part of the brewing and distilling process. Accu-Tech gloves are designed to grip all surfaces, wet or dry, which means the ease of switching from opening your fermenter to hosing down the floor is maximized.
Our chemical hand sprayers are easy to handle with inner seals made specifically to handle harsh chemicals. The adjustable nozzle can go from a fine mist to a stream. Whether you need alcohol on hand for a quick, sanitary spray or you are scrubbing down your equipment with chemicals, it’s the perfect sprayer to have on hand.
Creating craft beer or whiskey can be an expensive industry. From quality ingredients to the necessary equipment, spending to get a great result is nearly unavoidable. While it can be easy to see measuring and safety tools as a place to cut corners by buying inferior products, the small stuff is just as important when it comes to creating a quality product. You would never want the same container used for measuring your ingredients to also come in contact with dangerous chemicals. The casualty of missteps in the creation process is often the end result: the beer or spirit itself. This is why, when it comes to the big picture, keeping an eye on the little things matter.
We raise a glass to your amazing efforts with yeast, sugar, boiling points, and time – and would love to tell you more about our variety of top-of-the-line measuring products and safety tools.
