I have a taprite regulator, which I bought new, and the scale is 0-60. I will look into a 0-15. Maybe I'll start by pushing it up to 16.

I'm relatively new to kegging, having done about 5 or 6 batches. I'm doing the set and forget method, 12 psi at 40 degrees for a pale ale, which seems right on, according to the carbonation chart. ...
