    That’s wishful thinking; a 3200 doing 3k a year? Madness.

    Yes its Green king that make Abbots Ale. They also do Landlords choice which they quite often change the name of to match the name of the pub thats serving it.

    Thats quite common. One of the reasons behind it is that the cellar training courses are usually run at the brewery and as a result the lines get cleaned more often. Another reason is that the in brewery bar is quite often free or heavily discounted for staff. The through put is much higher as a result so the 9s or 18s depending what they are using change probably daily. The pub across the road likely has a lower through put as the brewery workers are supping for free at work without the need to go out to the pub.

    Most pubs clean their bitter lines once a week. I do my after every 9 gallon keg (firkin) has been dispenced. I know then that the line is always as clean as it can be which protects the quality and taste of the beer.

    As I have said before keep an eye on them and if you catch it in time it won't destroy the engine as I know from my very own project car still going strong since I put a new assembly in.

    Mine’s coming up to 15 years old with 76k. If/when it goes, it won’t really bother me as I’ve got a cunning plan for the engine rebuild. Bring it on! Btw, HNY Dave and many of them.
