SG readings at time of kegging/bottling and carbonation
 
Hello,

I've got three carboys that I would like to free up. They read at 1.008, 1.01 and 1.014. I'm going to put them into 5 gallon cornelius kegs. Will this produce to much carbonation considering their current SG readings? Aslo, I will be bottling some of this cider. What is the maximum SG reading at the time of bottling without worrying about bombs. (I wont be using champagne bottles)

Cheers.

Jonny

That depends on a lot of variables, but if you used an ale or wheat yeast, you can always cold crash and then carbonate in the kegs
