Purge and adjust psi to 6, this will give you 2.36 and is middle of the road for carbonation, let sit until its carbed up and then adjust if you want more carbonation.
So the first part, 30 psi....I do that to set my rings and gaskets, the first time you have a keg leak co2 will be your last and you will probably adapt this method, so you know you have a leak before you empty your co2 bottle.
Now with 6 psi will give you 2.36, which is middle of the road, and you can always go up but not down.
I do something similar, I fill keg then hit it with 30psi for 48 hours. The 30psi really sets the seals. After 48 hours I purge and usually do 10psi at 36*F in my chest freezer. To get 2.36 volumes at 6psi, your beer would have to be at 30*F. http://www.kegerators.com/carbonation-table.php

Right?

Here's a good calculator...

This is the one I really like to use if you want to nail the exact volumes you are shooting for. Plus it alows me to calculate the pressure for my nitro tap because you can change the %CO2...

I brewed this according to the all grain recipe as posted, and it turned out wonderful. Thank you for sharing. We are really enjoying this.

Just brewed today. Super pumped for this one.

Quick question, but when do you guys add the Limeade.. I see it says in the notes add after vigorous fermentation has subsided so I'm guessing to add the Limeade when the fermentation is still rumbling after 3-5 days? Anyone give me a little more clarity? Thanks guys!

Because yeast all work different, you will have to watch the fermentation to see when it lightens up....that can be done visually if using bottles, by looking to see if the wort is still moving around....if your using a bucket, look at your air lock and if there is a 2 second delay in bubbles it's started to slow done. In general this happens between 3 to 5 days, but if your not sure then just add on day 5.
After you brew this once, and have gone through the process.....you will see why you need to wait, if you don't then expect a mess!

Just tapped my keg of this last night. Outstanding! But this morning I'm hurting. Too many trips back for a refill. Very good beer. Thanks
