I'm kegging for the first time. I've got a dubbel that I'm going to keg. I've been looking up carbonation levels and haven't been able to find anything about how many volumes of carbonatoin I should do in the dubbel. Is there a good place to find this info? Also, if anyone has any tips for first time kegging, I would apprectiate them.

Dubbels are less carbonated than some other Belgian styles. One recommendation is here: http://www.billsgarage.org/BGCats/Beer/Brewing/carbonationlevels.htm
However, I would disagree with these values for many Belgians. A level of 1.9 - 2.4 volumes of CO2 for dubbels and tripels seems too low to me. According to Brew Like a Monk, most of the dubbels are carbonated much higher, around 3.0 volumes. Myself, I think a dubbel should be carbonated to about the same level as a standard American lager, about 2.6 volumes.
You can decide for yourself.
