Conditioning, Packaging, Cellaring, Cask
Following green beer production, the brewer has many options available regarding further processing methods, and even packaging type and size. In this lecture, we will explore one of the most traditional and specialized techniques, cask beer.
As with all beer, quality and consistency are two primary considerations that underpin the production of cask-conditioned beer and will be at the very core of our assessment of the processes and variables involved in this traditional method.
Further to identifying the fundamentals of secondary fermentation, we will discuss key aspects of the equipment and techniques used for the conditioning and serving of this iconic method of producing and serving beer.
