    How about the target CO2 level for Negra Modelo? I have contacted the local distributor, but have heard nothing back.

      The distributor will not know, you need to contact the brewery. And it is not a CO2 target, it is a definite value.

        Brewery is in Mexico and my emails to them have not been answered. Thus, I contacted the distributor. As it turns out, they do know these values --- according to the folks I spoke to. They just didn't have the information for this beer.

          Flying Bison Buffalo Lager is 2.6. This is from the counter guy that sold me the keg at the brewery. I didn't catch his name.

                Wish all Brewery's would place it clearly on the website. Such a disservice to the customers in not doing so.

                    Does anyone know the CO2 level for woodchuck cider? My wife is craving it in a 1/6 for the kegerator.

                      What is the correct vv. CO2 for Blue Moon? I am also assuming they recommend 38*, is that correct? I did a search and I came up with varying recommendations. Thanks.

                        08HDFXD,
                        The postings you should look at are from Scott, the beer guru, the thread as follows:
                        http://www.micromatic.com/forum/us-e...moon-foam.html
                        Scott says it should be 2.75, beer temperature is all about taste, some like wheat beers on the warmer side, some on cold, what temperature you like to drink certain beers at is what temperature you should shoot for. Be warned it's been noted Blue Moon is a tough beer to pour right (like most Coors products), if you have 5 foot lines I would lengthen to at least 7.

                            From Sierra Nevada direct-

                            Most of their brews (including Pale Ale and Celebration) are at 2.55
                            Their specialty beers vary a lot

                              Thanks KB,

                              I did find that thread but at that point in my search it just seemed like there was so much variation in what people were saying, that I didn't read it to the end. The conclusion there is a 2.75 v/v beer, and that a 10' beer line is recommended, which is what I will go with.

                              BTW, I just received this response from them this AM:

                              "Thank you for contacting Blue Moon. We appreciate your interest in our products.

                              Blue Moon kegs have an internal keg pressure of 12 - 13 PSI. In general, a minimum of 2 - 3 PSI above the internal keg pressure is required to keep the CO2 in the beer. It's best to store the beer at a temperature between 30-33 degrees Fahrenheit in order to assure that the beer does not go bad.

                              Sincerely,

                              Blue Moon Consumer Affairs Department

                              ------------------------------------------------------------------


                              I am about to take delivery on a keg of Blue Moon for the holidays. Could you please provide me with temperature recommendations and what volumes of co2 your beer requires? Thanks!"


                              I am assuming that the temperature he is speaking of is storage temp., not serving temp. Regardless, I'm going with 2.75 v/v

                              Thanks!

                                I understand the confusion, with all the information floating around the forum, if need to settle a point of information, even from breweries, as I said I'd look to posts from Scott Zuhse, to settle on a conclusion, his experience in the business is invaluable to this forum.
                                Yes, they mean internal unit temperature, I've had temperatures as lows as in the mid 20's and as high as low 40's as compressor turned on and off, the only temperature you really need to be concerned about is the beer temperature. Next time you send an inquiry to a brewery, ask for the exact v/v of the beer and that your home dispensing.
