I am looking to dispense beer in Nitro, Guinness style (although I will be starting with a cream ale). I have heard/read conflicting things about beer gas and nitrogen. I understand beer gas is used to push beer longer distances when co2 would require pressures that would over-carbonate.
Is beer gas what is used to dispense with a Guinness type tap or do I use pure nitrogen? How do I treat the beer as it comes off of aging. Do I carbonate, or do the same thing with beer gas or nitrogen, or what? I've got the faucet already (my birthday present) and need to buy a tank. What do I need? I have cream ale in secondary, about 3.5 weeks out.
Thanks in advance. I hope this isn't a re-occurring thread that just went away.
