What is a Carbonation Chart?
The carbonation level of your beer is a function of your CO2 PSI and your kegerator temperature. The colder your kegerator, the more CO2 your beer will absorb. You need to decide two things: How cold do I want my beer to be and what carbonation level do I want to serve it at.
A carbonation chart is a reference to determine the right CO2 pressure based on your kegerator’s temperature and your desired carbonation level.
