    Anyone know if Founder's Breakfast Stout needs nitrogen (or beer gas?) and/or a stout faucet? Or does it just use co2 and a normal faucet? I'm considering getting a keg of it, but not sure which to use. I contacted Founder's but have not heard back yet.

    CO2, they have had it on nitro at the pub, but most of the time co2. I would assume if you bought a keg it would take co2.
  3. it is on CO2, have one tapped at home.

    Also have this on tap using CO2, different question though. How long can I expect a 1/4 barrel of this to keep ?

    Sorry for the late reply guys. Thanks for all the responses! Never did get this one yet, althought I will be really soon.

    Can I use a standard faucet, or do I need a stout faucet?
  10. I dont think you ever *need* a stout faucet.
