Monty’s are constantly striving to perfect their brewing process along with making it as sustainable as possible. They decided to use Brewlab’s due diligence package to monitor production throughout the year, so that if a problem did develop, they could act on Brewlab’s advise and prevent any wasted products. The plan also enables Monty’s to maintain consistency of product. Pam stated, ‘The easy bit is we get sent the sample bottles and swabs and told exactly what is needed, which is one less thing to think about when running a busy brewery! We’d highly recommend Brewlab’
Monty’s are also SALSA accredited so need to ensure that they are fully compliant with requirements such as ATNC and NDMA tests as well as ABV and microbiological.
