Go to the sticky and find a pressure chart.

FYI - 25psi @ 60'F will give you 2.63 volumes of CO2.

For me 2.75 is typical for American Style of beers. Getting colder will only increase the volume of CO2.

Im guessing when you keg you dont have to worry about storing at a certain temp do to the fact that your not using priming sugars like you would have to with bottles, correct?

Thinking about it again, I am confused. If I pressurize at 10psi constantly, how will I ever obtain the 2.5-3 volumes of CO2? Shouldn't I pressurize at 25psi for a few days, then leave it on at 10psi?

As it gets colder it has the ability to taking more CO2.

You need to look at a pressure chart. Pull this up and read about it some.

This should shed a lot light on the process.
