I'm upgrading to an 8 tap system. i want 1 euro style faucet. I plan to run this off of normal Co2 until i get some extra funds for beer gas/nitro tank and regulator.


the question is will i be OK for some time using co2 with this style faucet?

thanks!

(if someone can recommend a better one, also please do)

Even with the restrictor plate out for non-nitro beer, it foams more than a regular faucet.
I have 2 of them and a couple spare perlick 525's to fill the spots for when I don't have 2 nitro beers to tap. Much less hassle.
You need to rinse the spout after using it, they seem to hold some beer up in there that will dry up and get sticky, unless you use them often.

I have 1 creamer version now, although it's very nice. i don't think it really does much other than add alittle temporary head on a beer. it doesn't stay on the beer for long.

i want to get a traditional euro style faucet and a nitrogen set up.
