Chemical Concerns for the Craft Brewer

By Lyle Boucher Executive Vice President, Ace Chemical Products, Inc., Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA. Paper presented at the MBAA Post Craft Brewers Conference, April, 2000, in Milwaukee, WI, USA.

A sanitation program is as good as you make it. Adequate knowl-edge, forethought and preparation are essential prior to getting start-ed. Never use cleaning chemicals without prior training in safe handling procedures. Never allow employees to become involved in using chemical cleaners and sanitizers without prior training. Your chemical supplier should be your partner in this endeavor. Choose your chemical supplier carefully. He or she can be a great help to you.

Un programa de sanidad es tan bueno como uno lo hace. Un conocimiento adecuado, una buena planeación y preparación son esenciales antes de empezar. Nunca use substancias químicas de limpieza sin antes haber entrenado en los procedimientos de manejo seguro de substancias. Nunca permita que los empleados se involu-cren en el uso de substancias químicas limpiadoras y sanitarias sin haber sido entrenados previamente. Su abastecedor de substancias químicas deberá ser su aliado en esta tarea. Escoja cuidadosamente a su abastecedor de substancias químicas. El o ella puede ser de gran ayuda para usted.
