Apparently left hand is able to do this. Anyone figure this out yet?
I really don't think the widget is a big factor.other than adding nucleation points. The bottled Guinness I've had without it wasn't noticeably different.
So you bottle with 75n2 and 25co2 and it works for you?
I'm referring to Guinness' bottled stouts. Just an observation.
Yeah i get that my original question was how do they do it?
The widget in Guinness is a big factor in the beer. When the can is opened, the pressure drops in the can releasing the nitrogen, or so goes the theory.
As far as left hand being able to do it without a widget, they have not revealed how they do it, it's a tightly kept trade secret. I know nitrogen will not stay in solution without being under pressure, my guess is that they developed a way to package the beer completely under pressure. So when you open the beer, the nitrogen comes quickly out of solution giving you a frothy pour. Others suggest they add a drop of liquid nitrogen to the beer at packaging, allowing the nitrogen to remain in the beer long enough to package it.
Not likely an easy thing to do for home brewers, you can still do it by kegging and serving with beer gas. No bottling that stuff at home.
