Your barrel has the possibility to produce a high level of carbonation, but the pressure limit will make getting there a bit tricky. The problem is that at fermentation temps, you'll hit the pressure limit with only a medium level of carbonation. Check this carbonation chart and you'll see that the range possible at 15psi goes from moderate (1.7 volumes) to ...

If you stop the fermentation with camden, you will not be able to bottle carb it. The camden will prevent the yeast from functioning in the bottles. You can add the honey, bottle immediately, and once they have carbonated, store the bottles in a cold environment (mid to high 30's) to force the yeast into hibernation. This will allow the yeast to carbonate ...

It depends on how your system is configured, mainly on the length, inner diameter, and material of the liquid lines. This article explains it better than I could. Most home draft systems seem to settle in somewhere between 8 and 12 PSI. You don't need to turn off the gas. There is only so much CO2 that will dissolve into the beer at a given temperature and ...
