The fridge is at around 39 degrees, I think I will leave them at 12 psi. I just thought it was strange to see basically the same beer at identical pressure carb so differently.

The Betco product does not mention fermentation tanks, but does mention dairy tanks and dairy processing equipment, so it looks to be a very similar product.
