Enjoy the uniqueness of GUINNESS and other Stout beer at home. A unique mix of nitrogen and carbon dioxide helps stout beers swirl that tumbles and gradually separates into a rich black body with a smooth creamy taste.
Includes all the major components you need in order to dispense stout beers, and an option to choose between keg couplers to match the type of stout beer your dispensing. Simply pickup a tank of blended gas and a keg of beer locally, and you will be ready to dispense a variety of the unique stout types of draft beer at home.
To retain the taste the breweries intended, nitrogenous beers need to be dispensed with a stout type faucet, a 75% Nitrogen / 25% CO2 gas blend, and a dispense pressure of 30—35 Lbs. As well you will require a keg coupler appropriate for the type of stout beer you will be dispensing.
The unique stout faucet has a built in stainless steel restricter plate that the beer is forced through creating the distinctive cascading head with these type of beers. This plate breaks the nitrogen out of the beer creating a cascading head on the poured beer. This plate must be left in place and cleaned frequently to remove any buildup that may clog the tiny holes in the plate.
The gas is a 75% Nitrogen / 25% CO2 gas blend and is commonly referred to as Guinness gas. This gas blend is inappropriate for ales and lagers, as it will change the CO2 content and thus the flavor of these beers. Purchase cylinders of mixed gas locally. We recommend inquiring with the store you are getting your kegs from for a local source of mixed gas, or look in your phone book under Gas or Welding supply stores. Request gas that is used with beverages, and in a nitrogen cylinder with a female valve. Although most bars and restaurants store their stout beers at the 36—38°F temperature (which is critical for most non—pasteurized ale and lager type of draft beers), most breweries recommend their stout beers are served at a temperature of 42°F to get the best flavor attributes of their product. Always verify with your local beer distributor the brewery recommended temperature and type of gas for the beer you intend to dispense.
