I have been working on canning a drink I have been selling for the past couple of years. So far reception has been good. However to increase shelf life, cut down on costs and to be more environmental friendly, I decided to ditch plastic and go with cans.

I've done a lot of research so far and purchased all the equipment necessary to get started. However I have a little issue I am hoping someone can help me with.

I am currently using the Oktober Design can seamer for testing purposes. I plan to purchase a complete setup from Cask Brewing once my proof of concept is realized.

That said, are there any issues I should be aware of when canning a drink that is not carbonated or nitrogenated? My process is as follows:

  1. Nitrogen purge of the cans
  2. bottom fill cans using a can filling and purging machine (forgot the name of it)
  3. Seam can lids with MK16v2 can seamer
  4. Pasteurize cans in 160 degree F water for 15 minutes
  5. Apply shrink sleeve to cooled cans.

What are your ideas of this process and am I on the right track?
