I cannot find the answer to my question despite searching the forum.
I recently brewed a blonde ale small batch. 2.5g, OG 1.048, FG 1.008 with Wyeast1056. Racked onto corn sugar/sterile water simple syrup in sanitized keg. Topped with CO2 and sealed.
This is my first attempt with keg conditioning.
I used BeerSmith to calculate corn sugar carbonation amount for roughly 2.5vol of CO2. It called for 2.5oz of sugar. After I put the keg away, I noticed that if I changed the calculation to "keg with corn sugar" it only requires 1.17oz of sugar. Did I overcarbonate because the keg is more airtight? or does the calculation reduce the required sugar because of some Co2 force carbing the beer when it is connected to the tank?
I only wanted to try this in order to limit use of Co2 for only pushing the beer through the kegerator rather than force carbing.
Any advice, thoughts are appreciated.
