- LISTING OF CARBONATION LEVELS
This thread is for all discussion regarding the carbonation level of different beers. If you know the carbonation level (volumes of CO2) of a particular beer, feel free to post it here. The goal is to create an extensive listing of known carbonation levels, so please help out your fellow beer enthusiasts and share your findings!
- CONTACTING BREWERIES...
Whenever possible, please verify carbonation levels with the brewery. This is the only way to be certain that the information is accurate. If you've emailed the brewery to ask for a carbonation level, for instance, please post a copy of their email response.
When contacting a brewery, it's a good idea to mention that you are only looking for the carbonation levels of their product(s), not pressure recommendations. Often, a brewery representative may recommend pressure settings for a system set up different than your own. Remember: the beer's "volumes per CO2" carbonation measurement is the only thing you'll ever need to determine proper CO2 pressure! The required CO2 pressure may differ depending on keg temperature, altitude, and other factors... so it's best to calculate this yourself based on the beer's carbonation levels.
Sometimes, breweries will provide their carbonation measurements in "grams per liter" (g/l). This is especially common with importers and European brands. To convert this to volumes of CO2, simply divide by two. For example, if a brewery specifies that their beer has a carbonation content of 5.2g/l, you would divide this in half: 5.2 / 2 = 2.6 volumes of CO2.
