I have a question regarding 5 gallon CO2 bottle pressure.
How much should the regulator meter go down when the bottle goes from an ambient temperature of 85f down to say 70f ?

85 is pretty hot to store kegs of beer at. Is it a garage or something? At 38F you should see 500 psi and I believe 700 at 65F on the bottle itself. At 70 you want about 35 psi to equal 2.5 volumes of co2.

The bottle sits outside the refrigerator and went from an 85f car to a cool garage.
I am talking purely the pressure that the regulator reads on the contents of the bottle. I keep my kegs around 8psi.
