I should keg this, but it's cold in the brewery and I'm feeling lazy. So, here's a pint of Ordinary Bitter right from the pail.

That looks great! Talk about real ale.

I had a little sip from my fermenter today, too, truth be told. It's not very good, though. Just a flat American amber ale. I think your bitter looks wonderful.

I had a dream about going to a bar last night that had 7 cask beers. Now I can't get casks out of my head and am afraid a beer engine and real ale is my next brewing endeavor. The wife will not be happy.

If you look at RV equipment, there are hand pumps that are reasonably priced alternatives to beer engines.

You're awesome. We have a popup with this same pump.....and we don't use the water system when we camp!! I wonder if swmbo would notice a big hole in our camper counter. I could totally play it off as making her more storage space and then hmm what to do with this old faucet/pump......

Whats the time limit for drinking a cask beer?
I'm thinkg 2-3 gallon batches. When it's 75-80% done fermenting, rack to a small vessel to serve from. The other 20-25 fermentation will give it the mild carbonation. But pumping it with that pump, how long till it's too oxidized to drink?
