I know someone (forget what member) adapted a 16g holder to accept 8gm bulbs. I wonder if someone with a 3d printer could make an insert that would work not just with these but with mini kegs?

As I don't own a tap-a-draft or a mini keg tap (although I own some mini kegs) I'm not sure what is required but it would turn a mini keg into a nitro pourer?

I have 16g nitrogen bulbs. I naturally carbed the beer and then poured with No2 but result was a crazy head. I got the bulbs online, can't remember where but it was a place selling those cream dispensers that use No2.

I have the website I got the nitrogen chargers from. They sell both 8 & 16g. Would post a link but not sure if that breaks the rules of this website. If anyone is interested PM me and I'll send the link.

I think you are getting confused with nitrous oxide which is laughing gas. A mate put one on a keg by mistake and had a massive head and a terrible headache

Maybe thats why I had a massive head on mine then, don't recall any headaches though.

hi brewers,i read some where the nitro/co2 mix is used in creamflow beers,john smiths smooth/creamflow,ect.
also in widget cans.it will not support beers/larger over 4%.the nitro will go in the beer but will not push it out,
30% co2 is used to push it out.my local pub changed from hand pump to gas assist,the beer was drinkable,but weak.
had 2 pints,went home for some homebrew. just sayin

Link away. It only breaks the rules is you're the seller. Then it's a case of becoming a forum sponsor if you wanted to promote your stuff here

Thanks, not so sure they are the right thing now but I did notice other online brew shops selling these nitrous oxide for stouts.

It does seem they're nitrous oxide (which you dont want) rather than nitrogen (which you do)
