I have a cask which I want to serve in 10 days time, but I’m not sure when I should vent it. I am worried that if I do it too early, the beer may go off, and too late, the keystone could be forced out. Please can you advise me? Thanks

 

As long as it is well in date, stored in a cool place and not too volatile a brew you should be OK it is sometimes stored by wholesalers for that long anyway. This should really be up for discussion in the forum everyone’s point of view is different. Personally in five days I would roll it, tap and vent and then hard peg it, then monitor it till it is used. Use this article as a reference.     spiling-pegging-venting-real-ales
