When I do start kegging....I plan on nitrogen for my stouts...i am a huge stout fan.....but I will be sure to check on N2 availability myself.
I wouldnt use nitrogen for any other beer styles myself.
I've had IPAs on nitrogen, and they are great. But I don't miss having a nitro set up for myself. It's really up to each person to decide what they need.
Without a nitro set up, my oatmeal stout is still great due to the flaked barley and oats that I add to get a creamy mouthfeel and a creamy head. But with it would it be even better? maybe. But I don't really care enough to invest in the nitro set up.
