Good stuff!
Here in Lethbridge (S. Alberta), no one fills Beer Gas tanks, and leasing one runs between $85 and $100. The gas is another $75.

That's wicked Nobby!

Do you notice a big difference using the beergas vs straight CO2?

yes massive difference it would have been better if i upped the n2 mix to 20 psi ish

i just served my last 4 or so litres of amber punk through it
but set the pressure to 5 psi like the conventional co2
but have learned this week that n2 mix is served at higher psi than straight co2

like 20+ psi to get the correct head etc

my xxxxx simcoes in me cornie at mo carbonating on pure co2

at 11psi 8c for a week slow carbing
then will be switched to n2 co2 mix for serving

at try 18psi 10c :cheers:
PS
the five x's are for each hop addition including dry hop
