... just put 8 to 10 psi on them and let them set for a week.
If the CO2 bottle is in the fridge, it may show improper bottle pressure, unchilled the bottle should read correctly.
Thanks for the quick reply,
Now that you mention it I remember reading somewhere that when the bottle is in the fridge the reading is lower than the actual, I pulled it out to check and within an hour the gauge showed over 100PSI more than in the fridge. I feel pretty stupid about that...
But I have read that bit on force carbing, and I did re-read it, and again re-tried the high pressure quick method and I must have just not shook long enough, the carbination now is excellent.
Thank you so much for all your help...
Now its time to show off the fruits of my labour, and enjoy a few too many beers with some buddies
