WHOA! I know I've read in several places about force carbing where the beer is pressurized at up to 30psi over night, or over 2 nights, and then ready to be served. No way you're gonna tell me you serve that at 30psi!
Maybe I can be convinced that given enough time, beer pressurized to 5psi will carbonate, but I'm guessing that will take a few weeks.
So many different documents floating around about how much pressure vs time is needed for the carbonation process, but almost every one of them says serving pressure is in the neighborhood of 5psi.
Not sure if my local store has 3/16 tubing, but I'll check.
