    What’s this cheeky chappy called?

    Ah the English muffin is different to the north west muffin, we have oven bottom muffins for a start but in my small corner of the world almost any soft bread roll was a muffin

    I haven’t done it yet but have seen people filling on YouTube leaving a fairly small area filled with the head/foam, they seem to fill with foam pouring out which I assume takes as much oxygen as possible out

    Pressure Barrels - More than you wanted to know!

    I was starting to think I was the only one drinking them sort of volumes!

    Glad to hear you’ve got it working well, and the bags do a good job for storage too

    Thanks again for the reply, sorry I messed up the reply on my last post. I think I’ll try a few things over my next few brews and make some notes, probably update on here with my very amateurish findings

    Yes he has! I’ve thought about it a lot and I think I could do a similar system by just adding co2 to the barrel, it’s only when drinking a lot in a short time it would cause a problem which is why I wondered about transferring from barrel to bags. Seems like there’s a lot of ingenious ways...

    Interesting! Similar to the growler type setup think I need to do a lot more googling

    I’ve seen you can get 3, 5 and 10 litres which is why I’m keen. Do you prime the bag? Out of interest do you ever store them for more than a few weeks before opening?

    Yes I believe I can do something similar with the barrel so think that might be the best way

    If I could get these with a Vitop tap it would be perfect

    Maybe a mix of bottles and save the tap for a session then

    Completely understand why I should, but I’m keen to be able to dispense even if it’s only a pint a night

    Ale Storage Advice

    I’m a fairly new brewer and have only done kits so far. I most enjoy traditional British bitter and recently got hold of a hand pull. I’m not likely to polish off 20litres in a month so storage is fairly important to me. The question is about how best to store my brew for easy use in a hand...
