I'm confused. I just read this in the book Brew LIke a Monk: "the Double [is carbonated at] 2.4 because the 12-ounce bottles are not rated to hold higher volumes safely." Zainasheff suggests carbonating Belgian Dubbles from 3-4.
We have three kinds of bottles:
12 oz glass (reused from store bought beer)
17 oz PET
22 oz glass bottles
Does anyone know the suggested safety limits for each type?
