Fermenting reproducibility - universal tanks vs. conventional tanks.

Knudsen, F.B. and Larson, L.W.

Investigations have been carried out to compare beer produced in Unitanks with beer produced by conventional means. It was found that the Unitank process gave good repeatability from batch to batch and the beer was similar to that produced conventionally. The tests carried out included chemical analysis of products, gas chromatographic analyses and a consumer taste test. The results of these tests were so satisfactory that the Unitanks and the Uniprocess are being routinely used at Rainier Brewing Co. for the production of beer.
