To Nitro or not to nitro
« on: March 04, 2019, 06:35:25 AM »
Hey guys  im doing a Guinness clone at the moment but i dont have a nitro tap or set up has anyone brewed a guinness or any dry irish stout for that matter and ran it off  c02 how did it pour and how much of the mouth feel was lost?  I just want some opinions before i rush out n buy a nitro kit 😂 also has anyone tried souring and reboiling small amount of the wort how did it workout for you guys ? 

Cheers 17 🍺🇦🇺

i have been thinking of getting a Nitro setup myself.
my stout last year was good, but if it had the nitro setup it would of been awesome 8)
with the nitro it would of had that nice creamy head and a little softer carbonation.
i am probably going to make one of my small Co2 tanks dedicated to the beer mix.

i havent soured any of my dark beers yet, so im interested in hearing what others have done.
