Default Real Ale Cellarmanship PDF

Real Ale lovers alert!

I found this link to get a download of a pdf version of CAMRA's Cellarmanship Guide. Interesting reading and information.

I am all over this - maybe I will deliver a book report once I've read it . . .

I have already found some great stuff in those pages. It is good to know that CAMRA is not opposed to using a blanket of CO2 on top of a cask to prohibit oxidization.

I have a cask breather for this purpose and it is great.

CAMRA did a blind tasting on cask beer, a set with a cask breather, a set without and NO ONE could tell the difference.

Brewpastor . . . can you tell me where/how you acquired this cask breather? I have been dreaming up plans of making one that will work with my corny kegs. Can you post pics, etc? I am interested in seeing how it works.

I got mine from Banner Equipment. I don't remember what I paid, but it wasn't cheap, especially considering it is plastic! Yet I needed it for my engines. I pull off of cornies that are in a chest freezer. Works great. I will see about some photos, it may be a little while, the next week is going to be really busy, but I'll see what I can do. Remind me next week if you would.

I have a copy that someone from this board sent me a long time ago when I posted my DIY beer engine from an RV pump

Anyway . . . . pm me if you want it.

Sonvolt,

UK Brewing Supplies (www.ukbrewing.com) sells a cask breather. There's a picture of it on their website.

Cheers,
Paul

I got my breather from Banner http://bannerbeer.com/whs/product_info.php?products_id=122

It wasn't cheap but it was cheaper then UK Brewing. Also, Foxx Equipment sells something they call an in-line vacume breaker that looks like a breather, but I am not sure what it really is or does. It is MUCH cheaper then the breather I bought, but as I say, I have no idea if it is does the same thing or not.
