Hello, I've been brewing for about a year and have bottled all of my beer in the past. I have recently gotten a keg and a CO2 tank. Instead of making my own beer, I have decided to go to a local brewery and fill it up. Now that I have the beer in my corny I'm not sure what carbonation level I should put it at. So does anybody have any tips?

By the way the beer that I got is an ESB from Lucky Lab brewery.

Usually around 12 psi (at about 40 degrees or so) is what you want to be at to keep it in the middle range for carbonation, and should be good for an ESB. If you google around, you can find some carbonation tables that will tell you what PSI corresponds to what carbonation level at each temperature, and there are lots of resources that will tell you what carbonation different types of beers should be at.

You can always ask the brewery too. I do the same thing and use the carbonation levels they recommend and it always seems to work out well.
