Abstract

The Wachusett Brewing Company is a microbrewery that is looking to improve the sustainability of their quality assurance programs. Through process validation and optimization, we identified their current cleaning procedure of their bright tanks and subsequently developed a revised procedure based on a benchmarking matrix. Through analytical testing methods, both procedures were within the limit of our defined quality metrics. The use of this revised procedure would improve sustainability by saving time, money, labor, energy, and water.
