Beer Brewing

CryoCarb™ provides beverage grade carbon dioxide and nitrogen to brewpubs, microbreweries and regional breweries in southern Wisconsin and northern Illinois. Our gases are used throughout the beer making process.

Growing Yeast Cultures

During the fermentation process, oxygen can be used to promote yeast respiration and growth.

Blanketing Tanks and Barrels

Blanketing refers to carbon dioxide that sits atop of tanks or barrels to protect your beer from oxygen. This is possible because carbon dioxide is heavier than air.

Pressure Transfer from Tanks and Barrels

A pressure transfer technique is used to transfer beer without any exposure to oxygen. Carbon dioxide and nitrogen are used in this process.

Carbonation is achieved through direct or forced carbon dioxide infusion into the beer. It is a fast, effective and controllable method of carbonation.

Can and Bottle Purging

Cans and bottles are blasted or purged with carbon dioxide to clean the containers. Before seating the lid, a shot of CO2 is injected into the can or bottle to displace oxygen.

Cleaning Vessels

Carbon dioxide is used to purge fermenters and clean kegs before being filled with beer.

From keg to your glass, carbon dioxide and nitrogen gases are used to provide the perfect pour. Too much gas creates foamy beer and too little results in flat beer. Typically, one pound of CO2 dispenses about one half barrel of beer. A blend of nitrogen and CO2 is used for some lagers, stouts and nitro beers.

Quality Assurance

CryoCarb™ supplies gases from production plants in compliance with the U.S. Food, Drug and Administration’s current good manufacturing practices (cGMP) for pharmaceuticals and human food.


Make safety a priority and take time to learn about the risks and hazards associated with using compressed gases.

The pressure inside of cylinders is hazardous. A full compressed gas cylinder that falls and breaks its valve can travel with explosive force resulting in severe personal injury and property damage. Even at relatively low pressures, gas can flow rapidly from an open or leaking cylinder valve and cause harm.

Regulators, valves and hoses are gas specific and not necessarily interchangeable. Never tamper with safety release devices in valves. Consult with the manufacturer for complete information on how to safely use these devices.

The gases inside of cylinders have unique properties, hazards and other considerations. For example, oxygen supports combustion and increases the risk of fire. Argon, carbon dioxide, helium, nitrogen and nitrous oxide may displace oxygen and cause asphyxiation to humans and animals.

Please refer to the Safety Data Sheets (SDS) on each of our gases for hazards identification and detailed information on the physical and chemical properties of each gas. In addition, safety data sheets contain information on personal protection; safe handling, storage, transport and disposal; environmental data; firefighting and first aid measures.

We provide SDSs for all our products in solid, liquid and gaseous state for your reference. Refer to gases. If you do not see your SDS online, you may request one by emailing or calling us.
