Default Mixed Gas Tank Fills (Denver Area)

So I will be getting a Nitrogen tank and regulator for the holiday and have been calling around looking for a place that fills the mixed gas (75/25 N2/CO2) but have had zero luck. I am curious if anyone in the area has any suggestions? I have tried every LHBS, liquor store, welding supply, and CO2 fill station I am aware of without much luck.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

No, I called them and the lady said No and didn't have any ideas on where to go. I know they fill CO2 there and thought they did the beer gas mix but I guess not?

I know this is a bit of a drive, but if you are in a huge pinch, the AirGas in Fort Collins said that they could fill a tank with "beer gas" last time i went in to fill my co2 tank.

That helps, there is an AirGas downtown somewhere I think. I will check it out.

Thank you

I've actually swapped out a CO2 for beer gas at the General Air in Boulder on Walnut Street. Try them out.

I second Alowell's suggestion of General Air, last time I was there they said they could do it. I fill my tanks there and they have good prices ($20 for a 20# tank of CO2)

I hope you stopped at the Walnut Brewery on the way there and back too? I used to be the sous chef there about 10 years ago.
