How long should ale containers be pegged?


I’m new to cask ales and would like to no should i keep the peg in the barrel during dispense if so which peg and how long a life should i be expecting to get on a barrel? Thankyou

Three days after you start to use it, is about the norm for a 3.8% ale, higher alcohol content will give you a little longer. When on sale, loosen or remove the peg and cover the hole with a hop strainer or similar. To extend the life you should hard peg when not in use.

Do you have a better answer? Leave a reply or an opinion
