Your Pinter Pack is designed to be left at ambient room temperature; there is no need to keep it in the fridge.
Pouring your Fresh Press
When your Pinter Pack is almost empty, be sure to roll it up to squeeze out the remaining drops. To make sure your Fresh Press is fully mixed, we recommend the following:
- Shaking your Pinter vigorously for 60 seconds. Feel free to do this in different intervals if you cannot manage it all in one go!
- Use water which hasn’t been chilled. Consider using a mix of warm and cold tap water in the colder months.
- Fresh Presses should not be stored in the fridge as this will only make them more difficult to mix - room temperature storage is best.
There’s no need to rinse your package out afterward. We’ve done extensive testing in the Brewing Development team and have found that the new formulations consistently hit targets without rinsing the last few drops out.
When undocking after brewing, if you find a small amount of Fresh Press mix in the Brewing Dock, please do not be alarmed. You will likely still have success - we recommend carrying on with the process and conditioning.
The shelf-life of a Pinter Pack is 9 months. You can check the Best Before date on the reverse of the Fresh Press.

Loyalty - a mild english ale strain designed to accentuate malt or hop forward beers.
Balance - a delicate lager/ale hybrid strain that brews refreshing light beers.
Rise - a super flavorful and high ester strain designed for wheat and belgian beers.
Vigour - a fast fermenting cider strain.
