New This Year
The Firkin Experience!
Whats A Firkin?
A firkin is a unit of measure and also the size of a particular kind of keg used for cask conditioning; one quarter of a barrel or 72 pints. The most curious thing about them is the manner in which they are tapped. The keg is laid on its side and the spout is driven in horizontally. A breathing tube is inserted in the bung which is now on top to enhance the flow of beer using only gravity. CO2 is not used! Thus you get a naturally fermented and carbonated beer in a small batch. Many think beer tastes much better this way.
About Our Firkins
