Does it really matter what gas and pressure I use on my beer kegs?

Absolutely! The correct gas mix and gas pressures will dictate the profitability of your draught beer system. Improper gas types or mixes and incorrect gas pressures will cause undesirable outcomes including over-carbonation, foamy beer, flat beer and general customer dissatisfaction.

In most situations tuning a draught beer system to 2 oz per second at the beer faucet is a base line to start with.Adjust keg pressure such that a 16 oz pint is filled in 7-9 seconds. Generally speaking this will give you the correct keg pressure.

That gauge pressure can then be used to determine the correct gas blend. Call GAS for assistance anytime!
