Guinness Gas

I stumbled over a website a few months back of some guy that has a
Kegerator at his house. I believe he had mentioned that he doesn't use
Nitrogen to pressurize his Guinness, but a different gas. It was came
cheaper than the Nitrogen, and the Guinness tasted just as good.
For the life of me I "cannot" find the page anymore!!!
I should have bookmarked it. Does anyone here have any idea which gas
he could have been talking about?

'Beer gas' is usually a blend of nitrogen and CO2 and is what is used for Guinness. If it's not this, it might be plain old CO2.

No, it was CO2 and a substitute for Nitrogen. He specifically chose it because it was cheaper than Nitrogen.
