hi guys,



I am about to keg my beer for the first time , i plan to use the slow carbonation method of putting between 12-15 psi for about three/four days with out rolling the keg. I have brewed a cream ale that calls for about 2.4 units of co2.


After three/four days i will taste for carbonation levels and either start drinking or give extra time if still under carbonated.



My questions are :

Does this method sound correct?

And what serving pressure do you adjust regulator to serve.

And do you vent pressure valve after reaching your desired carbonation level and adjusting back to serving presure.



Any help would be greatly appreciated.



cheers Leigh.

If you want your carbonation to remain consistent, your serving pressure should be the same as your carbonation pressure. Other than that, the method looks fine. No idea what your carb level will be as you haven't told us the fridge temp, and that affects the level of carbonation that can be achieved by a certain CO2 pressure.
