What gas and equipment do I need for craft brewing?

Air Liquide can provide you with advice on all elements of gas supply for the brewing, carbonation, sparging, kegging, bottling and canning process. Food Grade Nitrogen, Oxygen and Carbon Dioxide are all used by the brewing industry and supply can be from on site tanks, to banks or single cylinders. The right choice of equipment and gas such as gas regulators, switch panels and hoses has a considerable effect not only on quality, but production efficiency as well.

What are the uses of Nitrogen for Brewers?

Nitrogen is used in numerous ways by the brewing industry. It can be used as an ingredient in Nitro Beers, where it creates bubbles (with different properties to CO2 bubbles including no taste implications). It can also be used to purge vessels of unwanted oxygen. Micro breweries and bars often use a Nitrogen and CO2 mix to dispense their beers through draft systems.
