Fellow homebrewers, meet my new beer engine . . .
 
If ya'll remember, I have been slowly working on building a beer engine from the direction of the two BYO articles. Well, I've finally done it . . . and I am drinking my first "real ale" from it as we speak. I did some revisions to the BYO approach . . . here is a pic. I'll describe more if anyone is interested.http://mysite.verizon.net/mgboyd/beerengine.JPG

I am pouring an English Brown Ale in the pic. Tasted pretty good, but the beer is cloudy at the bottom of the keg since it is truly cask-conditioned. It is getting clearer with each pour. The ice in the cooler gets the beer down to about 45-50 degrees, just what a cask conditioned ale should be served at.

I am going to drink on this tonight. I will post some pics of the inside and some description of how to make it, etc. later.

That is totally kick ass man!!!! Great job!

So how are you serving? Is it being pulled with CO2 or the pump only?
