I am going to do a stout in my new pin that I got from NorthernBrewer, and had a few questions for those of you that have experience with casks.
I want to have the addition of raspberries and cocoa nibs to the cask. I understand that it takes two to three weeks for the cask to carbonate. So will having the addition of 5 pounds of raspberries and 8 oz cocoa nibs be okay in the cask for that long of a period? I was worried that they might start to break down and deteriorate or give off flavors etc etc.
Anyone with experience with this please give your two cents or lessons learned from casking. This will be my first time using a pin.
Thanks for the help, cheers.
