I asked this in another forum but I figured I would give this question a shot in here. I finally was able to keg a batch of homebrew, probably the best step I have taken so far. I force carbed my pale ale @ 11 psi (39 degrees) for 1 week. Everything came out fine. Perfect carbonation. I am now dispensing at 8 psi.
My issue is with my commercial kegs. My kegerator (dual tower) came with the generic 5ft of 3/16" ID tubing. When I dispense my commercial kegs (so far they have been SN Ruthless Rye, Wolaver’s Oatmeal Stout, and Saranac IPA) I would need to dial down the serving pressure to 4 to 5 psi to get a good pour.
My question is, Can I lower my serving psi on my corny keg to the 4 to 5 psi range and still be ok or will the beer loose carbonation? I have not noticed any real loss of carbonation on the commercial kegs at this pressure (they lasted 1-1/2 to 2 months tapped.) Or should I bleed my next commercial keg.
