What is a mini cask?
Mini-casks are small versions of the 9-gallon casks we send to pubs, filled exactly the same way with the same beer and live yeasts that give it a soft carbonation (or ‘conditioning’) to the beer.
Whats the difference between a mini keg and a mini cask?
So, unlike a mini cask, a mini keg doesn’t need to settle before opening – you can pour it straight away. As the beer is no longer ‘live’, it has a much longer life than casks (around 9 months) so you can store it away for when you need it!
How long do mini casks last?
Please note: Mini casks and polypins have a shelf-life of at least 6 weeks if unopened. Once opened they will be good for at least 5 days – or longer if you’re lucky.
Are mini kegs better than cans?
Mini-keg benefits to brewers and drinkers We now have an inhouse sector expert, Scott Wilkins, with an encyclopedic knowledge of brewers’ packaging needs.

How do you keep a mini keg cold?
- MAINTAIN KEG TEMPERATURE – thick insulated neoprene material keeps your keg cool for 8+ hours.
- WATERPROOF – inside is waterproof so any ice or wetness on the inside won’t leak to the outside.
- INSIDE POCKETS – holds ice and freeze packs to keep kegs colder.
Why do bottles taste better than cans?
Because beer cans limit exposure to both light and oxygen, they keep the beer inside fresh and flavorful for longer. When beer is exposed to ultraviolet (UV) light for extended periods, it leads to oxidization and an unpleasant “skunky” flavor in the beer. Glass bottles block out some light, but not all.

What’s the difference between a live beer and a mini cask?
All are unfiltered – the yeast remaining inside conditions the beer (adds carbonation) which is why we call it a ‘live’ beer. This means that the mini-casks have a shorter shelf-life than our cans, kegs and bottles, but it’s the freshest way possible to enjoy our beers at home.
