Follow the Water

Identifying where and what to measure begins with diagrams that show the ‘Ins, Outs and In-Betweens’.

Make a process drawing of all process steps

Make a floor layout showing all equipment, water lines and drains

Show on the drawing all water inputs and water uses, such as:

  • Equipment
  • Hoses
  • Sinks

Show on the drawing all wastewater outputs

  • Tip: Don’t forget to consider and include non-process contributors such as retail tasting areas and growler filling stations. These can contribute beer directly to the drain.
