Default Kegged beer carbed, now what?

I have searched for this simple answer, but haven't found a clear cut answer. My first time kegging. I have had the PSI at about 8-10 and temps at 38-40. I have been pulling 8 oz samples to test, but here is my question(s):

1). Do I just pour 8 oz with no adjustments to the CO2?

2). Once I feel the beer is carbed to my liking, do I just keep pouring pints with no adjustments or do I bleed the keg and then set serving pressure to desired PSI?

Thanks in advance.

Carb PSI and serving PSI are the same with the method you're using. Only bleed and reduce if it's too carb'ed. Use an online carb calculator, such as http://www.brewersfriend.com/keg-car...on-calculator/

Enjoy,

that is what the set it and forget it is all about. Once you pick your serving temp and CO2 volumes use the calculator set the regulator wait for it to carb then pour and drink. You should not need to touch the regulator again.

You can leave it alone and start enjoying it if it's now carbed to your liking.

What length/size of beer line are you using? That's going to have a big influence on the kind of pour you get.
