I just found out that I can get ‘Guinness mix’ in my area. I’m wondering if it’s fine to just have them start filling my C02 tank with the mix instead of straight CO2 and continue to use the same regulator? My C02 tank is a steel 1800. The guy at the shop was thinking it wouldn’t work due to the fact that nitrogen tanks are generally pressurized to 3000 psi. But that is only a matter of volume… it has nothing to do with dispensing pressure???
Also… Do most people force carbonate with straight C02 and then switch to the mix?
You need a higher pressure regulator. The procedure partially carbonate the beer and then switch. You’ll also need a stout faucet to serve properly with nitrogen. Kegs on nitrogen are typically at about 30psi.
I just checked my tank and it’s an aluminum 2050 psi and 7 cubic feet (an odd size I know). Just curious why you need a gauge that would read 3000psi? Do you just mean a regulator that can handle 3000??
This is really confusing. If I have a tank rated for 2000 psi… why wouldn’t they just fill it to whatever the tank is rated for? At what psi will this gas be delivered???
