Default Bottleing a 2 year old Flanders Red

I have a 2 year old Flanders Red that I am ready to bottle.

After sitting around for 2 years is there still the "normal" amount of co2 in suspension?

I do not want to over carb, I am thinking about 2.2 volumes.

I am expecting to get between 4.5 and 4.75 gallons.

How much priming sugar should I use?

(Of course I plan to add a little champagne yeast).

I can't wait to bottle mine. Of course I'm only at maybe eight or nine months...
So long to go...

Sorry to not answer your question but I obviously haven't gotten to that issue

In theory yes. CO2 has predictable solubility at temp and pressure. However, fluctuations in temp, pressure, jostling, will change that. Anymore, I assume a negligible contribution after degasing from transfers.

Best case, I would use the max temp it was sitting at in the calculator. I leave the calculators at 80° F, just to eliminate the contribution.
