I have a query (or two) regarding the How to look after Cask Ales guide.
The guide instructs that a cask should be spited within eight hours after delivery and that the cask should be broached with a tap at the same time whilst also directing a further period of forty-eight hours be elapsed before the ale is to be served.
If the ale is best consumed within three days of broaching does that leave only twenty-four hours for the optimum experience to be garnered by the drinker?
I hope that I haven’t misunderstood the guide.
This site has been invaluable to me and my micro-pub.
