What does Clean In Place (CIP) mean?

Clean-in-place (CIP) is the act of cleaning every interior piece of your brewing system without dissembling each piece. 
When it comes to our Spike electric systems, we encourage brewers to use their pumps to moving water and a cleaning agent through every hose, fitting and port that touched wort, to ensure a bacteria free surface for future brews. These instructions can be found in the process guides for each system.
Why CIP?
  • Less manual labor! Let your pumps do the heavy lifting and save you the assmbly/dissassembly
  • Decrease chance of missing bacteria. If your system is still assembled when cleaning you can follow your brewing process and push sanitizer through the same setup you brewed with, ensuring you don't miss a spot!
