However, there are some important practices that need to be adhered in order to present a pint of cask ale that you, the brewery, me and cask ale can be proud.
DON'T leave the cask in the walk-in and drag it out minutes before tapping and serving. Cask ale needs to be kept at 50-56 degrees Fahrenheit and the yeast should be allowed to settle for at least 24 hours.
DO bring the cask out of the walk-in at least 24 hours prior to serving,
vent it, tap it and put it in its final resting place undisturbed. The wooden
stillage, ice blankets and insulating jacket will help with this.
The complete kit for firkin is $ 416.30, while the kit for a pin is $ 383.55 plus shipping and tax if applicable.
