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?

remember that randalled beers just gate rated under the original beer, it doesn’t count as a new rate

Thought you weren’t into all that social media stuff Ken. But I don’t know what they are up to at the Jolly Butchers. Haven’t been there in ages.

Ken’s a closet Twitterer. When other’s aren’t watching he enjoys a good tweet or two.

He’s got his own website AND 43 followers! Good work, Ken!

Damn! Alter ego revealed!

I’m 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. It’s mostly a gimmick. The device CAN improve a shoddy, underhopped beer ON OCCASION. But to run a Kernel beer through an ’infuser’ or a ’Randall’ (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, isn’t just dumb and pointless, it’s 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.
