The table will then show the range of CO2 volumes that are appropriate for the style selected across the top and temperature down the side. For each temperature/CO2 volume combination, a beer line length and properly balanced psi setting to carbonate the beer and push it through the given length beer line are displayed.

Let me know how it works for you and if you have any ideas for improvements.
I don't think I can edit a thread this old, so I will just add on to it - the original link has changed addresses, so here is the file:

By popular demand - okay, maybe not popular demand, but 2 people asked - the Beer Line Length Calculators in full metric, and for Canadians, partial metric (pressure in psi).
