What is cask ale/real ale

Cask ale is a natural product brewed using traditional ingredients and left to mature in the cask (container) from which it is served in the pub through a process called secondary fermentation. It is this process, which makes real ale unique amongst beers and develops the wonderful tastes and aromas, which processed beers can never provide. It is served from a cask (firkin) without additional nitrogen or carbon dioxide pressure. Cask ale may also be referred to as Real Ale, a term coined by the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA).

 

Why do we add additional “primers”?
Primers – sugars in the form of honey, fruit, Demerara etc. – are added for  secondary fermentation.

 

What is dry hopping?

Dry hopping is the process of adding additional hops, to add more of a hop aroma to the ale. Since these hops are not boiled, we aren’t extracting any of the oils from them, and, therefore, they will not be contributing to the beer’s overall bitterness. Dry hopping, simply, adds hop flavor and aroma. These hops are left inside the firkin, along with the priming sugar.
