Well I'm a little confused now. After 48 hours on 30psi it is still flat. It has some
carbonation but its only about half way there. Could it be because we forced carbed when it was

This is a great sticky that explains it pretty well: here is a calculator for keg pressure if
you don't like the charts: your beer lines are too short, then you may need to dispense at a

you need to set the regulator at for the temperature of your beer to get the correct

I agree that varying utilization rate is not the result of dissolved sugars, but this does not
mean that the Tinseth formula, or others, are wrong. Proteins/hot break may be the real reason,
