How to Pour a Perfect Pint of Guinness...
It is said that Draught Guinness is “first drunk with the eyes.” To serve the perfect pint, the 50-liter (13.2-gallon) kegs of Guinness should be dispensed by a gas mixture of 75% nitrogen and 25% carbon dioxide at pressure between 30-40 pounds per square inch to produce the famous rich creamy head. Dispensed through the unique Guinness faucet, Draught Guinness is ideally served at between 42-48 degrees Fahrenheit.
When building the perfect pint of Guinness, one must also master the legendary technique known as the two-part pour: Always begin with a dry, clean, unchilled 20-ounce imperial pint glass.
Hold the glass at a 45° angle close to the faucet (or Pub Draught can) when first drawing the stout to prevent big bubbles from forming in the head.
Fill the glass 3/4 full, with the tap fully opened, and allow the beer to settle completely (the head should be separate from the rich, black body) before topping off – this will allow the head to be lifted just proud of the glass. Mmmmm.
