Merrimack Ales tanks

With the help of a TURI Small Business grant, Merrimack Ales in Lowell evaluated safer alternatives to caustic sodium hydroxide. After testing various methods and solutions, the small business now uses brewers wash at a lower temperature and volume to clean and uses NADCC tablets to sanitize. Owner Adam Pearson demonstrates the process in the video below.

We are very interested in making our processes safer for us and for the environment. TURI is a great resource for us to learn about technologies we didn’t know about and the opportunity to pursue this safer alternative is fantastic.
