How to keep your Brewie clean

0 2 months ago

Brewie, as an automatic device already has cleaning programs to get the interior systems rid of any contamination inside. However, all cleaning programs have different goals and different structures.

First safety clean:
The first safety clean program is supposed to work as a precaution - after manufacturing, the B20s are already clean, but as any other equipment for eating purposes, the Brewies should be rinsed through. The safety clean does exactly that: adds the water and cleans out the interior tube- and valve-system. Don’t worry, if the safety clean stops at any times - the short clean uses exactly the same method.

Short clean:
Short cleans can be chosen with automatic or manual water inlet. The clean rinses out the inner system of the machine, cleaning out fast any remaining gunk from the previous brew. Always clean the Brewie with a short clean, once you have finished a brew, as soon as you have done with preparing for fermentation. Keep in mind not to leave the machine unattended, since all gunk from the walls of the tanks must be scrubbed down with a non-abrasive sponge - Brewies arrive with one, to make sure you have the appropriate equipment for cleaning.

Full clean:
The full clean program always starts with a Short clean cycle, and follows up with a thorough rinsing and washing, with washing tablets. The program keeps up for more than two hours, during which it uses water around ~70°C to utilize the ingredients of the washing tablets and get rid of all remnants in the interior system. The Full clean program should be used once after every 5 brews, or every time you’d like to put away the Brewie for a few days or use again after some time. The program will tell you when and when use the cleaning tablets - if the original tablets that arrived with the Brewie has been used up, you can always use any standard washing machine tablets. Keep in mind not to leave the machine unattended, since all gunk from the walls of the tanks must be scrubbed down with a non-abrasive sponge - Brewies arrive with one, to make sure you have the appropriate equipment for cleaning.

Sanitizing clean:
Just as the short clean, it can be used with manual and with automatic water inlet. The sanitizing clean uses water on ~90°C which makes sure that even the most stubborn contamination is eliminated. Sanitizing clean is the nuclear option of all cleans - use it, when you feel any smell or taste that should indicate that the interior system is not entirely clean or when you have not used Full clean for a while (even between brews or when the Brewie was put away for a while). Be careful not to burn yourself with the hot water! Keep in mind not to leave the machine unattended, since all gunk from the walls of the tanks must be scrubbed down with a non-abrasive sponge - Brewies arrive with one, to make sure you have the appropriate equipment for cleaning.
