Kräusening For Homebrewers


Alan Dufresne — College Station, Texas asks,

I’ve been playing around with fermenting under pressure using a spunding valve and now want to start kräusening. Is that something worth messing around with at home? I am not really clear what this method is and what it is supposed to do for my beer. A liter for your thoughts!

Kräusening is a lagering method with two main uses. And both are based on the same basic technique of adding some beer in the “high kräusen” stage of fermentation to beer that
