I've been thinking about this as well. If I carb at 12 psi at 68 degrees, will it eventually get there? Or do I need to go higher due to the higher temps?

Depends on what "there" is. If you look at our friendly carbonation table and extrapolate a few degrees below the end of the 12 psi column, "there" would be around 1.35 volumes of CO2. Very low level indeed. otoh, if you crank the pressure up to around 30 psi, "there" would be in the vicinity of 2.4 volumes, which would be good for a wide range of brews...

Cheers!

Useful thread. I also have Stanley's which aren't often discussed here.

If you're beyond the temp range or carb level on the chart, there are several calculators out there that will give a more precise figure. Here's one-

Thanks. I drink a lot of seltzer. I'm gonna try to carb at 4+ volumes at 65 degrees. Charts read 50+ psi. At least it will get it close

The pressure relief valves on corny kegs are typically set to vent pressure at 60-65 psi. There are other calculators that will go above 50psi, but I'd suggest keeping it under 50 if at all possible.

I figure if I let it carb at 50 or so psi at room temp for a week or so, it should be pretty easy to get that last half volume or so once I chill down to 35-36F
