Bottling nitrogen-charged beer


Karl Pergola asks,

Is it possible to bottle nitrogen-charged beer? My amber has been in the keg for two weeks pressurized with 25% carbon dioxide and 75% nitrogen. I plan to bottle it next week.

Anything is possible, Karl, and yes, you can bottle beer that has been “gassed” with a blend of carbon dioxide and nitrogen. Just use your counter-pressure bottle filler as you normally would.
