|2) Aeration and oxygen. The method by which these things are poured aerates them, perhaps allowing for some oxidation of various compounds (not checked the GC profiles of various beers, so cannot comment accurately) and certainly for the formation of bubbles. Everyone knows bubbles make thing taste good! Taste a beer poured through a sparkler as opposed to a flat, open nozzle. It makes a difference.|
Louis - Is something like this what you are suggesting? I know it works great for wines.... never considered using for beer.
Not quite, this wiki article explains everything.
The sparkler goes on the bottom of your beer pipe on a hand pull keg set up (beer engine).
Principle's about the same though.
