Default Translate moderate to moderately high

Stupid bjcp wording. What is moderate carbonation? What is moderately high?
I'm assuming moderate is mid 2's? Trying to get a few beers to style, and it's getting on my nerves.

Moderate is somewhere between too fizzy and flat.





I would be very surprised if this was even slightly helpful.

Exactly...... hahah

Honestly, I have no idea. I dont even pay attention to that. I just use a carbonation calculator and they tell me what range to go for.

I just let them tell me what to do and i think it takes a lot of guess work out of the BJCP "guidelines"

3 is excessive, isn't it (wheats aside)? i mean, belgians aren't even at 3, and those are supposed to be highly carbed

3 is excessive unless it's something like a Berliner Weisse
