    For a decent hand pulled beer up here your best bet would be Galbraiths or Vultures Lane in
    Auckland, Vultures have two and Galbraiths has about 8 of their own on handpull, Brothers Beer

    OK I get that. Is there any way to know how long it would actually take, I'd be quite
    interested to read up on this concept? I assume that the speed of equilibrium could be
    increased by splashing, or ...

    I would trust BeerSmith if you know any changes you may have made are reasonably accurate. It

    brewing I fou...
