As you guys know, I'm a big proponent of kräusening. I feel it can help clean up a lot of potential problems with beers, as well as lending to the authenticity of the brews as they were brewed hundreds of years ago.

Check out my original article here if your not familiar with it.

A while back, I got the impression that even though I thought the instructions were plainly written, that some people were having trouble understanding the math.

So, for your amusement..

If you really want to get authentic, you need to serve the beer warm from a wooden barrel that has been lined with pine tar and pumped out with a beer engine instead of using cornies and co2, or bottles.

It is a useful tool, for those willing to go to the extra trouble of saving a few extra gallons of gyle for kreusening or spiesgabing. It would be interesting to split a batch and kreusen half and prime the other to see if there is any detectable taste difference.
