A support for casks when positioned in the cellar. Stillaging is necessary so that yeast may settle into the belly of the cask and not be pulled out into the beer when it is dispensed through the tap. Stillages are usually two bars of wood or steel with the rear bar raised slightly higher than the front bar. The cask is further raised during dispense by placing chocks under the rear edge to assist flow.
