Cask Keg - New 9 gal (40.9L)
Cask ale demands precise storage and conditioning conditions, making the choice of keg crucial. This 9-gallon cask keg is perfect for dispensing authentic cask-style ale, catering to both home and commercial settings. Its distinctive streamlined appearance ensures it stands out among your keg collection.
This 304 stainless steel cask keg is designed exclusively for cask ale. Distinguishing itself from standard keg beers or light lagers, cask kegs contain unpasteurized ale that requires conditioning prior to serving.
Cask ales undergo dual fermentation: initially in the brewery and subsequently within a pub's cellar, which explains their kegging. Within the cellar, these ales necessitate venting, tapping, and conditioning overseen by the cellar manager.
Another distinguishing factor is that real ale lacks the pronounced fizziness of lagers due to the absence of added carbonation. It may possess a gentle sparkle from naturally produced CO2 during conditioning. When served, cask ale should maintain a crystal-clear appearance and be dispensed at a temperature between 11 to 13 degrees Celsius.
Crafted entirely from beverage-grade AISI 304 stainless steel, this keg undergoes full passivation, ensuring a pristine and hygienic surface.Height: 484mm
