Is there any reason one should not use a standard C02 manifold
for a beer gas mix?
I’ve got a 5 way and 3 way manifold. Thinking I could use the 5 way for CO2 and the 3 way for N/CO2 mix.
I can’t think of a reason why it would not work.
O2, CO2, N, N/CO2. The manifold doesn’t know the difference.

Yeah, I can’t think of a reason either. I was thinking about the fact that N is stored at higher pressure, but I suppose that doesn’t matter as long as the regulator output does not exceed the tolerance of the manifold–whatever that is.
My thought would be that the tubing would fail before the manifold or valves would.
Nobody keeps separate lines for different gas mixes. I even use the same lines for beer and gas. Keep it simple and universal.
