Crafting the Perfect Pint with Mixed Gas
We all know the perfect pint of beer – beautifully poured from the tap with a foamy head and a deliciously fresh taste. There are many factors involved in reaching that state of liquid perfection, but one thing you should never overlook is the all-important journey from the keg to the tap.
By using the correct mixed gas as part of your dispense system, every time you serve a pint, you’ll get that mesmerising cascade of tiny bubbles that slowly yield to a lovely thick head. The type of mixed gas you use makes all the difference in the look and taste of beer when it is served, while also extending the shelf life of your kegs.
Mixed gas commonly comes in two varieties, known as 60/40 and 70/30. These numbers refer to the ratio of Nitrogen (N2) to Carbon Dioxide (CO2). Cream flow and smooth flow beers like Guinness or John Smith’s Extra Smooth work well using a 70/30 mixed gas that has a high nitrogen content and low carbon dioxide content. Lagers generally require for 60/40 mixed gas. For all your postmix drinks and ciders, you’ll need 100% food-grade Carbon Dioxide (CO2).
At The CO2 Gas Company, we will provide you with the mixed gas cylinders and dispensing equipment you need to pour the perfect pint, time after time, making sure that your beers are a spot-on representation of the drink as the brewery intended, and keeping your customers happy.
