I've recently come across there being beergas or G-Mix and co2. I had originally thought that it was just co2 and not a mixture of co2 and nitrogen.

What are the issues with just using co2?


Most draft systems for homebrewers use just normal CO2. The beer gas of N2 and CO2 is used for 'nitro' dispense depending on the N2/CO2 ratio.


As brewchez stated it mostly for stouts with a nitro faucet in the homebrew world.

But Beergas is preferred commercially if a tap run is really long. The Beergas allows them to push at much higher psi without overcarbonating beer along the way, for all styles of beer.
