Default Kegging Cider

So I have heard that you need to use less pressure when carbonating cider than when carbonating beer, but could anyone tell me how much pressure should be used? I usually put beer at about 25-30 psi and leave it in the fridge for 24 hours. Also, it's a corny keg, if that makes any difference.

you would use the same pressure/temp chart regardless of what the liquid inside is - some people may prefer cider at lower carbonation levels but it's all a personal choice

During the summer we prefer our ciders and apfelwein high carbed. I keep it and serve at around 25psi. Through 25' of 3/16 line. Seems to just go better with lounging in the heat by the pool. Winter time I'll bump it way down, or even drink it uncarbed.
