Can someone please explain to me how to use this chart? I really want to buy a kegerator but I don't quite understand the carbonating step.
I know its very useful, but how do I use it?
I know I want to hit the green PSI depending on the beer type. So lets use an example. Lets say I want to hit 2.42 PSI. I will be using the force carbonating method that takes around a week, not
the fast way (shaking the keg and whatnot).
My question is, what do I set the regulator to, and for how long, to receive this PSI? When bottling, I will just cut down on the amount of priming sugar depending on the beer style.
After about a week I would dial it down to 10-12 PSI from what I understand.
Some might say leave it at 12 PSI for a week, but wouldn't that vary by style? It might work for a Pale Ale or IPA, but it might be too much for a Stout. How do I know what is ideal? Is it trial and error, or is there a method based on this table?
How do I know what to set the regulator to to achieve the desired PSI of the beer?
