Can Conditioning for Small & Nano Brewery Craft Beer Canning
Mobile Caning has brought the benefits of cans to many micro-breweries across the United States. However in some cases the economics of Mobile Canning are not sufficient for small breweries that may lack necessary infrastructure to support such a desire. Old Dominion Mobile Canning is offering a new, lower cost, option to small and nano brewers who wish to sell the craft beer direct from their brewery or locally through a distributor.
The approach utilizes low cost brite cans, self-adhesive can labels, and can conditioning of the craft beer. By can conditioning the brewery avoids much of the infrastructure required to filter, carbonate, and chill the beer before packaging. This eliminates significant infrastructure costs traditionally associated with canning or bottling. An added benefit is that much of the waste or lost beer associated the cold packaging is eliminated; all your beer gets into the can.
Can Conditioning can also impart other desirable traits in your beer. Many people attest that it gives you a thicker head with smaller bubbles that lasts longer. Some beer styles require this method to "do it right", such as some Belgian and German styles.
Aluminum Cans are the ideal vessel in which to condition your beer. They do not allow light and oxygen to get into contact with the beer, and thus provide an ideal environment for can conditioning.
While can conditioning can be used by any size brewery, and is, Old Dominion is making this option available to breweries that have as few as 6 barrels of craft beer to can. You could be canning your craft beer in as little as 3 weeks. Contact Old Dominion Mobile Canning for more information.
