what creates carbonic acid? and do you all agree with the corrections i made?

its sitting in my fridge now @ 30psi hooked up to the co2 tank.

in 2 days im gonna disconnect it, depressurize it, and connect it at 12psi for a week. testing it in the middle.


and i have carbonated before, but i only carbonated a bubbly girl beverage using the 30psi + shaking method + leaving it alone for a week. it was so bubbly.

If you dissolve CO2 into H2O it will create some H2CO3.
