I just used 2 different calculators and both say that my target CO2 volume for Dead Ringer IPA should be 2.3, and to get that I should use 3.7 oz of corn sugar. I’m also about to bottle a batch of Innkeeper, which I guess would be a British Pale Ale style (is it?), and am getting 2 totally different amounts ranging from 0.3 oz corn sugar (tastybrew.com) to 3.74 oz (the Beer Recipator). Tasty brew is advising that a BPA’s CO2 volume should be 1.025, whereas the Beer Recipator is saying 2.3. :?
I’ve made Dead Ringer in the past w/o a priming calculator and arbitrarily used 5 oz of corn sugar and cannot complain about the results. The 3.7 oz seems low but not totally out of the park. The 0.3 for the Innkeeper seems totally wrong. :shock:
Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Of course I’m literally about to bottle so this issue has me in a tailspin. :evil:
