I plan on having stout on tap and I plan on pushing it through a stout faucet. My question is can I use the mixed gas to push regular beer also or will this affect my carbonation. Can I still force carb or will I be stuck conditioning in the kegs. I really don't want multiple cylinders of gas. Paul

That answers some of my questions, but can I pour regular beer with beer gas or will it become under-carbed/flat?

it will become undercarbonated.

it really is worth it to have separate tanks. beergas is too expensive generally to use for 'regular' beers. co2 is extremely cheap.

also, even though you don't want multiple tanks, i would recommend getting at least one backup co2 tank. (i have seven co2 tanks myself, plus the 80CF beergas)
