Looking after your Bag in Box Beer (Polypin)
Please note we send all couriered Bag in Box deconstructed to ensure no damage is done. Simply tape your box up, insert the bag and then follow instructions below... FAQ is overleaf.
This beer is cask conditioned (sedimented) and needs to settle. Usually 24 hours. When locating the Polypin remember to find a cool place. The better the conditions the longer the life of the beer. In ideal conditions the beer can last for up to 4 weeks as no air can enter and contaminate the beer so that you can enjoy real ale on tap at home.
Your polypin may have been sent to you unmade as posting can cause issues with the box. If so, make you box and place the bag of beer into it, venting first through the tap if gas has built up. Tape the box and allow to sit for 24 hours.
- Transport your Polypin in an upright position. Tap at top. This reduces the pressure on the tap.
- On arrival vent it in the upright position by opening the tap and releasing any excess gas.
- Break and remove the perforated panel of cardboard to expose the tap.
- Place the Polypin in the position it will be drunk, with the back raised by about 2 inches (a book is often used to do this).
- Allow at least 24 hours for the beer to settle (the sediment to fall to the bottom of the Polypin). Sometimes a small amount of sediment stays in the beer and causes haze, this is nothing to worry about as all Wildcraft ales are unfiltered and unfined.
- Do not move from the location you will pour from until the ale has been
consumed. If you move it you must wait a further 24 hours until the cask ale re-settles again.
Looking after your beer
When locating the Polypin remember to find a cool place, the better the conditions the longer the life of the beer. In ideal conditions the beer can last for up to 8 – 12 weeks as no air can enter and contaminate the beer but starts to go past its best 3 to 4 weeks after opening.
Remember to keep out of direct sunlight!
My bag has inflated and won’t vent through the nozzle:
This is due to the bags being double skinned. The inner holds the liquid, while the outer takes any excess CO2. Although this ensures the beer is kept in peak condition for longer, it can become an issue when the bag outgrows the box.
Although not recommended by the manufacturer, we have found a way around this. Carefully pierce a hole in the outer layer, being very careful not to go through to the inner. Squeeze out the gas and then firmly place a piece of tape over the hole to seal the outer bag.
As the beer has been disturbed it will once again need 24 hours to rest if you dislike cloudy beer!
Is your beer really gluten free?
Yes, we use an enzyme called Protease to strip the gluten out of the beer making them suitable for anyone that is Gluten intolerant. We do however use barley and wheat in our recipes so if you are intolerant to either of these we do not recommend you drink it.
