Can I use and Argon/C02 (75%/25%) to purge my bottles before bottling?
Is argon a health risk?
Q1: Yes, seems pretty expensive when CO2 will do.
Q2: No, it's a noble gas.
I’m thinking he has a welder connection
Must. It would never occur to me to use argon in a beer.
I saw that mix at my local Tractor Supply Company. Made me wonder for a second. Only a second.
The reason is because I have a mig welder and a 80lb bottle of argon/co2 already, I don't have just co2 at the moment. I have two batches that are ready to bottle and would like to experiment with purging bottles. Will use co2 once I get it sorted out. Was worried that maybe bottles would not carb up if argon was in there.
I doubt that argon would affect carbonation.
Second that, should work more like nitrogen.
May even get creamier tighter head.
