I really enjoy a traditional cask conditioned bitter served from a hand pump. I have found that if you buy the same beer in a can or bottle they seem to be massively over carbonated, First question- why is this? In terms of my own home brew I bottle my beer in 500ml bottles, last time I made an IPA and used one carbonisation drop in each bottle. This was a little less than recommended, but turned out pretty good. A nice soft frothy head but with a light subtle fizz. However I would like to try talking this a little further. I saw a guy on YouTube who bottled a “Landlord” clone without any gas or sugar, and claimed it tasted much more like what you would drink in a pub. Second question - what are the implications of bottling with ultra low sugar and no gas? Will the beer spoil, or have a shorter life?
