C_B said:Anyone know anything about serving on beer gas?
I've been researching Stout taps and serving on beer gas etc. Mainly because I want to do the thing where the kegerator is in the basement and the taps are in the kitchen. The kicker seems to be the line. I need 1/4, but I have 3/16.

pressure in keg - ( pressure drop from vertical rise + flow restriction pressure drop ) = 0.
start with a normal keg pressure ~ 12psi
figure out the drop from the vertical rise.
get the difference .
then figure out how long the line will be and then you can figure out the appropriate ID.

But he's talking beer gas (partial nitro). Which I have 0 zero knowledge of.

it doesn't make any difference. the calcs are the same.

Until you're trying to figure out carb levels. Maybe. Unless the same pressure would keep the co2 dissolved regardless of what gas is holding the pressure.
Fuck. I don't know shit anymore.

same pressure, less CO2, so the flavor is different. but the pressures and pressure balance is the same.... unless you want a foamy mess.

Yeah I understand the math. The calculations say I should use 1/4" line at that pressure. But what if I use 30psi beer gas on 3/16 and still net enough positive pressure at the faucet for a normal/slow pour? ~1psi. On a 65/35 gas mix is that the same as having it at 10psi on CO2?
Dr_Jerryrigger said:The diameter has very little effect on if it will lift or not, it willwill, however have a large impact on flow rate. If you don't mind a very slow pour, you could go even smaller.
For every foot of height you lose 0.43psi. So do the math and try running it with the hose you have at the the pressure you calculated the tap will be at. If that works for you, install.
The kind of gas you use doesn't matter.
Dr_Jerryrigger said:15 psi will be about 11psi at the tap, seems like that would work even with the smaller line.

Having no other inputs, you've made quite an assumption here.
Lakewood said:always carbonate your beer before putting it on beer gas. always.
The beer gas is there to maintain the carb level while pushing the beer out of the keg.

Ok so this is key.
The answer is I need 1/4 " line.
Anyone want to buy some 3/16 " accuflex barrier tubing?

Nope. New (4 years ago) 100' coil.
