I decided to get a cask (Firkin)of my favourite tipple for Christmas 2008, Harvey's Best Bitter. I had an idea of how to do the necessary and got plenty of advice from 'experts' I know, but thought this looked like a useful factual guide. I was not disappointed, very easy to follow, whether you're an amature 'cellerman' like myself or better informed but want to broaden you're knowledge. Put into practice what the book recommended and very pleased with the beer, it lasted well and tasted great! It is an interesting read whether you intend to keep your own beer or are just interested in the subject. Puts to bed some of the myths as well. Highly recommended.
Reading through slowly and trying to take it all in. Hope to open a micro pub in our local town (first in Medway) and need to read up on it all. Despite being a thin paperback its full of everything you need to know about being a cellarman/woman. Fingers crossed the council will pass planning(which seems to be taking forever) so all the theory can be put into practice. Yeh ! A must read.
This book contains all you need to know about Cellarmanship. It's all here in this very practical and an easily readable slim volume. I showed it to a friend of mine who spent most of his life working in bars - he was wishing that he had been able to get this in his early years. Buy this one - you won't need anything else.
