Anyone know what they are up to? I keep seeing tweets about these infusers they are using. Anyone seen them in action? Are they Randalls?

Damn! Alter ego revealed!

Iím curious if the Jolly Butchers are using these infusers with the co-operation of the brewers. If I were a brewer I would not want people altering the flavour of my beers unless I was consulted.

I agree. Itís mostly a gimmick. The device CAN improve a shoddy, underhopped beer ON OCCASION. But to run a Kernel beer through an íinfuserí or a íRandallí (I read a tweet that said they did that), beer that I consider to be among the most beautifully hopped and balanced beers on the planet, isnít just dumb and pointless, itís also reckless.

The Crown and Anchor in Brixton are doing the same thing, which makes sense as its the same company. On my way there now. I'll let you know what they say regarding permission from the brewery.

They have the infuser hooked up to Redwell Steam Lager using northern brewer hops. They get the advice from the brewery regarding which hops would work best apparently. I'm very surprised any of them agree to it at all.
