Yeah, I am mainly going for the pour. I was actually going to bypass the real ale effects by keeping about a psi of co2 on the gas line so that as the beer engine was drawing the beer out it would be replaced by co2 instead of air.

Hmmm... maybe I will have to put a stout faucet on instead of doing the BE.

Yuri...I am curious about the argon. I've been doing the typical 25/75 for my stout faucet.

I have a big bottle of argon that I use for winemaking, so would love to stop filling the "beer gas" mix to save a buck.

Do you carbonate the stout with CO2 first, and then switch over to argon for the whole corny keg? Or do you put it back on CO2 when done pouring? You said "lightly carbonated". As in say, half the typical ale carbonation of 10 psi?

Sure would appreciate the tip. I actually have my beer gas cylinder in the car, to fill up on the way home.

Scott

I force carbonate on CO2 to 1.0-1.5 volumes. Then I put it on argon and leave it there. Since it's under constant pressure, it stays carbonated - there's nowhere for the CO2 to go.

If only I could get rid of that metallic flavor it imparts.
Is it because it is brass? I just bought mine and I haven't used it yet. I meant to get chrome but I got brass and I'm thinking about sending it back for an exchange.
