**A word about cask-conditioned ale from Stephen Hindy, co-founder and president of Brooklyn Brewery:

Are your beers vegan?

Yes; we don’t use any finings, except in the cask-conditioned ales, which are less than 100 kegs a year and served at only a handful of bars. The rest of our beers are vegan.

Cask-conditioning is an English technique, a special way of packaging the beer in a keg. When the beer comes out of the fermenter—out of the kettle—it goes into a cask—which is like a keg, instead of a tank, and you add the yeast in the cask and then you put a bung (a cork, except made of wood), and it ferments actually in the keg. When the fermentation stops, you add the finings—we use fish extract—and you seal it up again. And the fermentation—conditioning—completes in the keg, instead of in a tank. This is a traditional English style, and there are only three bars in the city that can even serve this, like the Blind Tiger, d.b.a., and the Gingerman. If a bar serves cask-conditioned ale, it’s usually on only one tap, and everyone knows that that’s the cask-conditioned tap, I mean it costs more money.  (Satya Nov./Dec. 03)
