    How many volumes of CO2 is typical for an ESB. Tasty Brew calculator has the range from .75 to 1.3. At 1.3 for 5.5 gallons the calculator calls for 1.4 oz.

    i aim for a 2. that way if you want less, you can give it a rough pour and let is sit for a minute to get it lower.

    plus, i like bubbles in my belly.

    This is where I carb mine as well, sometimes a tick higher if mouthfeel seems off to me, but with a keg bumping carb level is easy peasy.
