Cask Beer Sediment Allowance And Saleable Volume

You will be aware that yields on real (cask) ales can be affected by sediment created in the conditioning process of the beer as it settles in the cellar of your pub. This sedimentation process is known as the ‘conditioning’ of the cask ale. Allowing each beer the right amount of time to settle before dispense, is a key element of preparing the perfect pint for your customers.

Since not all of the cask contents are available to be served, each brewer individually agrees with HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) their own sediment allowance and thus the amount of each cask on which duty should not be paid as it is deemed un-saleable. Yields on cask ales will vary and this will impact upon the number of pints you can serve from each cask.

In order to assist you with your projections on your yields and expected returns, please click the link below where you will be provided with a guide to the sediment allowance for each cask product sold by Admiral Taverns. These are the most recent sediment allowance details which have been provided to us by the respective brewers. We have also provided an estimation of the average saleable volume from each cask. Any changes will be updated as we receive them from each brewer.

Should you require additional information in this area please contact your Business Development Manager who will be pleased to assist.

When purchasing cask beer, please note that all brewers have different sediment allowances (CAS) which have been factored into the Admiral Taverns prices.  The table below details the relevant sediment allowances, saleable litres and the equivalent number of saleable pints for all cask products currently available from Admiral Taverns as a guide to assist with selling price and gross profit calculations.
