14. ### CARBONATION   •  SECONDARY  FERMENTATION        C6H12O6  →

2  CH3CH2OH  +  2  CO2   •  FORCE  CARBONATION          the  solubility  of  a  gas  in  a  liquid  is  directly   proporRonal  to  the  parRal  pressure  of  the  gas   above  the  liquid.

17. ### BEER  LINE  LENGTH   •  P  =  L  x  R

+  H     •  P  =  Pressure  in  the  keg  in  PSI   L  =  Line  Run  in  feet   R  =  Resistance  of  the  line  per  foot   H  =  Height  from  the  middle  of  the  keg  to  the         tap  in  feet   •  FOR  1  PSI  POURING  PRESSURE  USE     •  P  -­‐  1  =  L  x  R  +  H
18. ### EXAMPLE  SYSTEM   •  P  –  1  =  L  x

R  +  H     •  12  –  1  =  L  x  2  +  2     •  11  =  L  x  2  +  2   •  9  =  L  x  2   •  4.5  =  L          or   •  L  =  4.5`
