Cellar temperature (10-14C) to ambient room temperature. Nothing special.
Thanks 👍🏻
Some calculators change the rate /L depending on temperature.
For 1.4 vols - 20L at 14c Brewfather advises 14.4g but increases this to 21.3g at 20c ??
Is that calc incorrect ?

just seen a post by @foxy explaining this 👍🏻

Ah, of course. I get you now. I thought at first it was a very odd question!

I'm using Beersmith but I guess these "carbonation calculators" are much-the-muchness. The temperature I've plugged in is the temperature out of the (temperature controlled) fermenter which is usually 15-16C after primary ferment. The temperature may be allowed to rise to ambient for a few days until served (often at room temperature, sometimes cooled to 14-15C), although some get chucked into the "keezer" for storage at about 6C.

I guess no-one gets a straight answer out of me?
