also, those number above seem correct, but i feel like something is missing. i am not sure if its the co2 levels equaling out to the pressure in the keg or what, but something just seems a little off. it seems to be that after 5 says at temperature and pressure the beer is still absorbing co2 at a pretty good rate and it could throw those numbers off.
it may very well not be carbonated yet. But to note, I set the PSI pretty high on monday night (around 25-30) and left it there til wednesday. However, I had been taking it on and off of co2 during that time frame, so even though I set it to 30, it may have absorbed quickly and didn't kick 30 psi back into the keg. Usually when I initially set it to serving pressure it takes a week or two to get proper levels.
