In stock and ready to ship.

Dispense rich-headed drinks like Guinness, cold brew coffee, tea, or wine safely and efficiently with this high-strength aluminum nitrogen gas tank.


    If you want to serve draft Guinness in your home kegerator, you’ll need this high-strength aluminum nitrogen gas tank. Nitrogen can also be used for other stout beers, cold brew coffee, tea, and wine on tap.

    Unlike other draft beers, dispensing Guinness requires a high-pressure gas blend of 75% nitrogen/25% CO2. That means the standard CO2 tank is not suitable for the job. Made of high-strength aluminum alloy 6061-T6, this lightweight canister is strong enough to be filled with the proper gas blend. It has a 2216 PSI service rating and capacity of 22 cubic feet. To ensure safety and performance, you’ll need to pair this tank with a nitrogen gas regulator.

    Before you order this item, we recommend you call your local gas dealer and ask about the availability of the mixed gas you’ll need (75% nitrogen, 25% CO2). Also check on their tank spec requirements for mixed gas filling, including size (cubic footage), rating (i.e. 2015), and type of valve head used (CO2 or nitrogen).

    Please note: due to federal regulations, we are only able to ship empty tanks. You will need to get the tank filled with the nitrogen/CO2 blend at your local gas dealer.

    • Specialized gas canister for gas blend (75% nitrogen/25% CO2) needed to serve draft Guinness
    • Produced from high-strength, lightweight aluminum alloy 6061-T6
    • Brushed body with cranberry painted dome
    • Tanks are shipped empty in accordance with federal regulations
    • Cylinders are stamped with required U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) and Transport Canada (TC) Markings

    Tanks a lot!
    This is my second tank as I always wish to have a filled spare. The quality is very good and thus far has been reliable. Shipping was on time and arrived when I needed it.

    Can you sell & ship tank full of nitrogen?
    A shopper on Mar 7, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: All our our gas tanks are shipped empty. We are unable to ship full tanks.
    Where would I be able to fill the empty tanks that get shipped to me empty?
    Andrew P on Jul 26, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: I personally have used a welding supply shop to fill my 5 # tank with CO2 for the past thirty years. They will also have your tank certified pressure tested when required. If you have access to a fire extinguisher refill facility they might also be receptive to filling and pressure testing your tank. Good hunting and good luck.
    Where, in the Buffalo, NY area, can you get these Nitro/CO2 (beer gas) cylinders filled? I checked with Haunn welding supply and they only do exchanges on larger (~40 cu/ft) tanks.
    Bob C on Mar 7, 2020
    BEST ANSWER: Hi Bob, we direct our local customers to go to Irish Welding on Clinton St. Cheers!
