I always thought it came from homebrewers wanting to do what commercial brewers do.  In a commercial fermenter, you have maybe thousands of gal. of beer sitting on the yeast causing a lot of pressure. 


This was my understanding as well.
In a Keg: Flanders Red Ale, Rye Altbier, Cascade/Topaz Pale
Fermenting: Flanders Red, Saison

To me, one of the best things about being a homebrewer is that we don't have to do what commercial brewers do.

Yeah... like brew beer for a profit! (see previous comment about 10 oz of pellets in 5 gal batch - I'll bet that one is goooooood)
