Bit of an upfront cost but the cans have a good shelf life. I've had these on back order but called the company, who have had them delivered today.

Works out about £1.60 a can including the unit
93p a can if you sell the unit afterwards.

Pour the chilled can into a glass, wack it on to the Surger unit with a bit of water and watch the magic happen.

Happy St Patricks Day!

Edit: Thought this would appeal to the collectors out there but they'll never see it, seeing as it's been voted massively cold by those who don't understand it. Not sure why I bother on here.

I know!

I remember when you could buy a surger unit for £16:99 in Tesco.
I thought it was brilliant, but Guinness never promoted it properly
A lot of pubs have them now if they don't sell a lot of draught.

my little local shop has 4x cans for £4 all the damn time

The Surger units are rare and I've yet to find somewhere that sells them new. It has been known to make a better quality pint than out of a normal can.

Or dip the wife's "Rabbit" in for a few seconds.

Looked into one of these before but as its not quite draught quality the price for these cans compared to normal cans put me off.

Draught - best
Surger - 2nd
Draught cans - close 3rd IMO.

youtube.com/wat…-uY That must be the flattest pint I've ever seen. How long had that been sitting?

I had oyster beer once, would this add a similar flavour?

How Does it Work ?
The Guinness is poured from the can carefully and slowly into a pint size tulip beer glass (preferrably a Guinness branded one!). A few drops of water are placed onto the silver plate of the Surger unit, and the glass is then placed on the plate.

Press the "Surger" button, and then watch as the Surger unit activates the gases already in the Guinness beer, creating the famous surge and settle in the same way as a normal draught font would work. And as if by magic you have your perfect serve of Draught Guinness, every time !!

What are the dates on the guinness cans?
