Crushing control: After crushing the raw material should be feeding, especially in the higher temperatures in the summer, if not promptly crushed feed, malt easily damp rancidity.
Boil Control: is an important part of the wort boiling sterilization, to ensure adequate strength and boiling boiling time.
Into the tank control: after boiling wort pumped to spin the sink, to promptly cooled to prevent the spin-heavy tank too long residence time, wort temperature is lowered, causing microbial contamination. Wort before the wort into the tank to make sure pipes, compressed air and yeast sterile. Into the tank must be done starting from "zero" pollution.
3.Fermentation health control
Before the wort into the fermenter tank in a sterile state must ensure that the fermentation tank cleaning should be timely, ensure the effectiveness of the use of disinfectant. After each use a fermenter to thoroughly wash cycle, to prevent health corner.
Fermentation plant sanitation must be clean to ensure that every day more than 30min ultraviolet disinfection, fumigation is conducted quarterly.
4.Filling health control
Craft beer and regular beer big difference is that it does not go through the subsequent sterilization, keeping the broth most pure taste and nutrition, so craft beer filling process to be strict hygiene requirements.

Craft beer storage and transportation requirements throughout the cold chain. Because beer is both rich in nutrients, but also there are more active yeast. If the temperature control is not good, it is prone to yeast secondary fermentation, the beer not only affects the taste, but also results in a higher pressure bottle, may cause up lid, bottle leak, leading to microbial contamination.
In summary, the health status of craft beer brewing process every step should have a very high demand, its space health and hygiene practices normative standard enterprise also has a strong dependence.
