Setting the right CO2 pressure for your beer dispenser
Setting the right CO2 pressure of your beer dispenser is very important when you want to pour a good glass of beer. It is therefor very important you have a well functioning CO2 pressure reducer. Setting the CO2 pressure is dependent on the temperature. The higher the ambient temperature, the higher the required CO2 pressure. When the pressure is too low you will experience a lot of foam. When the temperature of your beer changes you also have to change the CO2 pressure. In the table below we give an indication of the aproximate pressure for each temperature. This can differ slightly depending on the type of beer or if you are using a Lindr beer dispenser (see below).

CO2 druk en Lindr bier koelers
Lindr beer dispensers have different cooling coils compared to most other beer coolers. Therefore Lindr beer dispensers require a different CO2 pressure. Take this is still an indication and the required pressure can still differ, depending on type of beer and beer temperature.
For Lindr dry chillers the required pressure will be around 2,8bar. Take note that it is easier to increase the pressure of a keg than to decrease it. If you do not know the exact pressure you need it is better to start with a pressure which is a bit lower and gradualy increase the pressure waiting a few minutes between each attempt. If the beer flows too fast you can uses the compensater tap to reduce the speed of the flow.
For Lindr water cooled beer dispensers the required pressure is about 2,4 bar.
