Unfortunately the Tatton wasn't available yesterday.

Sampled the Frodsham 800 and the Conwy Rampart. Both very cold with a chill haze that lasted all the way down the glass.

If the temperature was right I'm sure this would excellent beer.

Hi Boughton,

The Tatton sold a lot quicker than we had expected so it's replacement Beartown's Polar Eclipse hadn't settled yet. It went on this morning.

As for the chill haze, it's a problem we have encountered before. Our cellar is kept at 12 degrees, which is the cold end of what we have been advised to keep it at. Unfortunatelty, we dont have a cellar that's sole purpose is cask ale, we share the space with lagers, guiness, bottle minerals and such and we have been advised to keep it at 12 degrees rather than 14.

I think we will experiment with 13 degrees and hope it will make things better for you.

Next time your in, introduce yourself, it would be nice to hear your thoughts.

Tim

You shouldn't get chill haze from a cellar temperature of 12deg.

What's your python setup like? If you don't have a separate python for cask with the cooling loop at a higher temperature than the later lines then you might be chilling the beer down further in there.

Hi JamesB,

Sorry for the delayed response, i've been on my jollys.

We don't have a python for our cask beers, they are directly linked from the cellar to the bar. I don't think that it should be getting chilled futher. Before I went away I set the temperature to 13 degrees and that seems to have done the trick during the cold weather.

Boughton Beerman, I'm sorry that I missed you last week. I hope you enjoyed the Oasthouse Gold! :drinking:

As always chaps, thank you for your feedback

It's over forty years since I visited the Stamford Bridge (I think it was a Greenall Whitley pub then). As I'm on the other side of town, a trip to Tarvin Road would take me past quite a few watering holes which serve some of the best ales in the country. However, your beer selections seem to be getting better: Peerless Full Whack and Dark Arts are two excellent ales. As you often have a Conwy beer on, may I suggest Conwy Rip Tide - one of the best beers I've drunk so far this year.
