Yup. It's a 'uni-tank' so you can do everything with it all in the same vessel

That’s another thing that I was considering Dan. I think I am looking at getting a second full height brew fridge to replace my under counter one to make sure I’ve got the clearance.

And yes with all of the oxidisation issue experiments we’ve been doing with NEIPA I reckon being able to do a pressurised transfer to keg would be epic.

You are dead right dude. In theory you could force carb in the unit (like a true uni tank) and then you could use a beer gun and flush/fill bottles direct from it.

Does that also mean you can pour direct from it? just simply chill it in the brew fridge and use to pour.

I think so. You can pressurise it (either force carb or natrual carbination like a PB), so I dont see why not

Edit. Yes. Just had a quick google to make sure

You can apparently, but for me this would mean tying up the brew fridge for too long, so plan to transfer to keg/bottles and carbonate as usual.

Surely it won't be that long if you are force carbonating it and then filling all your bottles . Would you remove the yeast before bottling?

No it wouldn't take long if bottling the whole batch, but I'd want most of it on tap, so it would mean using it like corny for however long the beer lasted.

I'd crash out as much yeast as poss like I do now before bottling.

My view is I won’t carb in the tank. I personally don’t see the point in carb in tank as that’s what I have kegs for.

Like you say tiring up the brew fridge and tank for a few months to dispense from would be a pain. I like at least 4 beers on tap at once

But being able to pressurise it to 1.5bar for transfer to keg is the real big one. That and being able to remove yeast and trub. And being able to see what’s going on makes it a winner in my book.

So Brewuk have them in stock with free delivery........
