Next to god­li­ness

One of the most im­por­tant things to keep in mind when brew­ing is clean­li­ness. Yes, wher­ever you brew will be a mess, but you need to keep the beer clean, be­cause all that sug­ary good­ness is very ap­peal­ing to mi­crobes. Pe­dio­coc­cus, Lac­to­bacil­lus and var­i­ous wild yeasts would love to get in on that ac­tion, so as soon as your beer starts cool­ing down af­ter its boil (which kills mi­crobes), you’ll want to keep them out. Buy a R15 plas­tic spray bot­tle and a sani­tiser – Iodophor is good – and spray any­thing that will come in con­tact with the beer or its con­tainer from then. In this case, more is more.
