Anyone tried canning?

Recommended Posts

Just wondering if anyone has tried canning their beer rather than bottling? If so what equipment was used and how successful was it? A friend in mine, who is an avid brewer, has a canning setup and his first several attempts at canning resulted in a rather messy garage.

No haven’t tried myself but as the norm is to can already carbonated beer apparently it can get messy as you have to “overflow” the can (overflow mainly froth) to eliminate oxygen then secure the top quickly.

Have also  heard some have canned before carbonation and added a sugar drop like with a bottle. For the home brewer I think it’s costly (also cans best bought in bulk) and messy however believe some brew club members have shared the cost and have all in canning days.

U Brew It in some State branches have canning facilities but you have to brew your beer there.

Yeah from what my friend said it sounded like it was more expensive. Also single use so not great cost wise nor environmentally. My friend has no kids so has the funds and time to spend mastering his not small investment in brewing kit. On a side note he has also built his own astronomical observatory in his backyard. Complete with done and large enough to sit.... he has way too much spare time.
