I've been fretting

Well, not me personally but some of my casks have. 

When you add a culture of Brettanomyces yeast to beer that's finished fermenting then a proper secondary fermentation takes place. But more on this later.


  1. I've never been a fan of plastic casks, Ed.

  2. We don't have many plastic ones but we find them handy for bottling as they weight less and you can re-use the screw in shives.

  3. Makes sense, Ed. I just shudder when I see a plastic one, knowing how some draymen treat casks and throw then about!
