Carbonation Calculation
« on: April 30, 2012, 08:24:04 PM »
If I select keg, it gives me 2.14 oz of corn sugar, if I select bottles, it gives me 4.28 oz of corn sugar!  Why the big difference?  I bottle a batch into three 6 liter bottles, and I usually just do my own separate calculation (which runs pretty close to the 4.28 oz).  But is that calculation assuming that there's going to be some forced carbonation going on or something?  Otherwise, I can't see how it could be right for a keg.
