How to Make a Home Bar in time for Summer

It’s difficult to imagine a summer without fizzing cocktails and draught beers in the company of loved ones, so with the lighter nights setting in why not make your very own home bar in time for summer.

Lockdown has set the bar high for home pubs and there’s still time to perfect an outdoor area for the whole family. Let us help you take your home bar to the next level with our range of beer gas and cellar gas cylinders.

There’s plenty of exciting things you can do to improve your home bar, including serving draught beers and fizzy pop for the kids or adding an outdoor BBQ area with patio heating.

Home Bar Products and Beer Gases 

Whether you’re planning a romantic date night, family party, or just need an excuse to celebrate, all of our beer gas and cellar gas cylinders are perfectly suitable for use in home bars. 

Beer gas is a crucial element in making and serving beer. The gas itself is often made from carbon dioxide, nitrogen, or a mix of the two. Many pubs and clubs will use traditional carbon dioxide heavy formulas, though most craft companies prefer to use nitrogen, as you can create a creamy beer for high pressure dispensing.

By introducing carbon dioxide to the brewing process, you can improve the aroma and add a slight bitterness to the flavour. Check out our range of CO2 gas cylinders which guarantee a perfect pint every time. We’d suggest up to 6.35kg bottles for smaller home bars and up to 35kg for larger more frequently used bars. 
Our cellar mix gas bottles contain a mixture of carbon dioxide and nitrogen which helps enhance the drinking experience for beer and soft drinks. Take your pick from our 30% CO2 / 70% Nitrogen bottle or the 60% CO2 / 40% Nitrogen bottle, both available in a variety of sizes.

Our large butane gas bottles are a popular choice for lighting barbecues quickly and efficiently, as well as setting up portable heating. Our 15kg butane canister will provide approximately 49 hours of heat on the maximum setting or 136 hours of heat on a minimum setting. A 45kg cooking gas bottle can last around 244 days, depending on the frequency and burner you use.
