Kegging and Bottling / Re: Effects of process variables on carbonation
« on: December 06, 2012, 11:22:03 PM »
Thanks for the help, to clarify a little more, because iI just realized how poorly I explained the project. We are actually going to attempt to build a mathematical model based upon the variables I listed that can predict the set points needed to achieve a desired carbonation level. We have a good deal of data about the solubility based upon the temperature, and a little bit on the sugar content. But havent been able to find much of anything about how the other variables listed will effect the desired carbonation level. I think we are going to have to just do a bunch of experimenting to determine the effects because it just doesnt seem like there is much out there. Thanks a lot though, what you have been able to provide has really been helpful!

Kegging and Bottling / Effects of process variables on carbonation

I am currently working on a project that is looking into the effects of several process variables on the carbonation of wine. I know this site is for homebrewing, and I am an avid homebrewer, which is why I chose the project, it was the closest thing I could find for a project that would allow me to work with alcohol!

Currently we are looking at how the sugar content, alcohol content, temperature, starting CO2 level, wine flow rate, and CO2 supply pressure effect the amount of CO2 that can be dissolved into the wine. I have been looking everywhere on the internet for information on this subject, and have not been able to find much on it. I am hoping that someone here might have some insight on the subject, or might have learned some things from brewing that could be applied to this project. If anyone could point me in the direction of where i could find information on this subject, or knows anything about it, I would be extremely appreciative. Thanks for all the help!
