Accurately calculating the carbonation is a great exercise for working with apparent and actual attenuations as well as working with the extract % or Plato scale. The latter is not essential, but makes things more intuitive.

The final carbonation of bottle conditioned beer depends on the CO2 currently present in the beer and the CO2 that will be generated during bottle conditioning.
