Re: Cask co2 volumn

Thinking maybe that since I'm going to use 1968 yeast I should finish it out in the fermenter first and do a diacetyl rest as well. Reading the spec sheet on this yeast says it does need one.

Re: Cask co2 volumn

Thanks PeeBee for advice, I too have time to fart so like to :roll: . I kinda like the idea of early transfer. I do have lots of toys like a tilt to help me measure the gravity as it falls and I usually do get my yeast pitching rates fine so hit my intended finishing gravities.

Re: Cask co2 volumn

I was thinking about maybe transferring fermenting beer to cask with about 2 plato still to complete the fermentation and adding finings as well :-k . Any advice from more experienced Caskmen or Women would be appreciated [-o<

Re: Cask co2 volumn

thanks for this. I had a brief involvement with a cask brewery back in the 80's and still have 1 remaining plastic sieve that we would fit to the end of a spear on a keg to allow us to use a keg as a cask. This means we would use the gas in port on a keg coupler as the vent with a homebrew plastic t...
