    It's probably a long shot but does anyone know the correct v/v for Goose Island Bourbon County Stout?

    Kane Head High is 2.6. Confirmed at the brewery on Saturday. I forgot to ask about Overhead.

    Magic Hat products:

    All of our draught product is carbonated to the same level. Between 2.50 and 2.60 parts per million of carbon dioxide disolved into solution. As for pouring presuure I always recommend starting at 15 psi and adjusting from there till you achieve a full, clear stream from the faucet.

    Cheers!

    Hi All. Just received from Harpoon Brewer: "Almost all of our beers are brewed at 2.5 v/v of CO2." This was in response to an inquiry specifically about thier Pumpkin UFO. Cheers!

    Allagash white 2.6-2.7. I do 36 degrees at 12psi, works well. Great thread, very helpful.

    A few recent ones:

    Ballast Point Fathom IPL --"It is 2.65 volume. Cheers!" e-mail from Director of Brewing.
    Great Divide Hibernation ale -- "Hibernation has 2.68 volumes of CO2" e-mail from GD's founder.
    Kane Brewing Overhead (fantastic IIPA from small NJ brewer; best beer coming out of NJ by far) -- "should be about 2.6" (via telephone from owner)

    I tried to get the v/v for Port Brewing's wipeout b/c it was coming out of solution, but their response was not useful. I asked for v/v, and they told me to set the pressure to 10psi. Won't be getting any more port any time soon.

    Just spoke with Ben in brewing operations at Baxter Brewing in Maine. He told me Baxters Stowaway IPA is brewed under 2.65 volumes of CO2. He stated this is an average from 2.6-2.7.

    Coronado Brewing Co Idiot IPA

    Recieved email from the head brewmaster:

    we package our Idiot IPA at 15 psi it has about 2.2 to 2.4 volumes, pretty average for most beer. It also depends on your keg system, length of draw and temp. hope that helps you out. Feel free to call if you have any questions. Thanks
