Tips for keeping Cask Ale


Cask conditioned beer must be stored in a temperature controlled cellar at between 11°C and 13°C (52-55°F), ideally at 12°C (54°F).

Why? Beer needs to be at the right temperature to condition correctly.

Too warm and it becomes over-conditioned, too cold and it lacks condition which may even cause a chill haze.
