Has anyone ever ruined a bottle by using this stuff? For some reason, I think I'd be nervous spraying it into a bottle of PVW 20.
Air is 78% Nitrogen, nearly 21% oxygen, and nearly 1% argon.
Argon is a "noble" or inert gas.
As pointed out above, Argon is heavier than air and is the superior choice if you are inclined to do this.
I've got some argon/C02 mix in my welding rig.... could I use that?
or would if be better to just drink more and avoid the storage issue altogether?
Private preserve uses argon, carbon dioxide, and nitrogen. Not just carbon dioxide and it's not too expensive.

Bourbon always did make me feel like a Giant.

It's not that obtrusive...it sits behind the bar wall, the hose snaking through the wall, and the pistol-like actuator hangs on a hook. Use it for wines and my whiskies. The cylinder will last me for a decade or more.
