Am I right in saying you can't over carbonate setting to serving pressure . ?
If so how do you reach a desired psi. Like the charts show for different beers styles ? Again sorry if this is stupid question .
Well following a chart like you see here: http://www.kegerators.com/carbonation-table.php
, its based on temperature and psi. You want to say within the color range of whatever you brewed. So, if you have an ale and your fridge is at 40 degrees, then you want the pressure to be between 9 and 13 psi. I usually brew ales and the mini fridge I keep the keg in doesn't have the best temp gauge, so its around 39 degrees and I keep the pressure around 10-12 psi.
