Hi folks, just a curious wee question. I'm an all-grain brewer but am going to do a canned kit in my uni design studio as part of research for a design/engineering project. Just a bit of fun.

My question is would I be able to bottle/cask condition a homebrew in one of these bad boys?

The seams will be put to the test, but it'd just be a good laugh dishing beer out of one of these with my course mates after a day in the studio.

Do you'll think it will carbonate? Or explode?

Cheers

Rob

I don't see why not, brupacks do these brubox kits on the same principle and they work fine. http://www.brupaks.com/brubox/index.html


The seams will be stronger than they need to be to hold water I'd imagine. What you do with the brewbox is condition with the tap at the top so any excessive bulging can be relieved then it is turned to serving position two days before intended use so that it can settle out.

I still use the little 10L brubox as a small scale fermenter for trying out new recipes, as it takes up so little space and fits in a cool box to try and control ferment temp.

there is a link around here of a guy that casked into a similar container and used a rv water pump for a "beer engine" for dispensing. I'm actually working on my now using a modified corny keg. Good luck.
