Liquor treatment according to Murphy’s: Beer contains approximately 90% water, and the importance of the liquor to final beer quality cannot be over-estimated. So the objective is to convert the water sent to us by the Water Authorities into acceptable brewing liquor. This we achieve by the removal of unwanted ions and addition of required levels of desirable ions
Established in 1887, Murphy & Son Ltd has helped many thousands of breweries and other drinks businesses achieve their targets and refine their product.
Their dedication to service, expertise and customer satisfaction is underpinned by industry leading quality and an extensive product range. Today they are proud to be leading suppliers to the brewing industry, and our heritage is equally notable and comprehensive.
Their founder Albert John Murphy was a highly competent chemist who developed a range of processing aids that improved efficiencies in the brewing process. He was one of the first to recognise the role of treating one’s water supply when brewing different beer styles consistently. He also led the charge in the development of copper finings for beer, culminating in the formation of the No Deposit Beers range. Until his death in 1940, Mr Murphy remained an innovator, dedicated to the development of brewing science and beer production efficiency. An approach that remains at their company’s core to this day.
Their range now boasts enzymes, antifoam, detergents, manual handling equipment and of course, isinglass finings.
