Quick question/problem....

I kegged my cider up on Tuesday and put it in my kegerator. On Wednesday I put the gas on it at 30 psi... Checked at lunch time today and still no carbonation. Anyone else have this issue or does cider take longer to carb?

My normal process is 30 psi for a day or two and then drop down to 12 psi and let it sit and by a few days it at least has some signs of carbonation...

Any thoughts? Wanted to serve it tomorrow for a birthday party... If all else fails, I can call it a "still" cider...

I have found that cider takes longer to force carb, for some reason. Don't know why. I'm surprised that you have no carbonation, though. I'd bump of the gas to 40 or 50psi. I have found that it is nearly impossible to over carb cider. I like my cider cold and very carbonated, so when I tap it, I'll get a lot of foam initially. But it is not like beer foam. It disappears quickly and you're left with a very bubbly beverage, a bit like champagne. Don't think you can mess it up by bumping up the psi.

Ive bottled conditioned both batches and have not been able to pastuerize either cause it conditions too quickly. When it pours, it foams like a can of sprite, and then its gone

I left the psi at 30 but did the shake method for 10 mins. Got it carbed up before the party yesterday. Although someone was comparing it to Redds apple Ale just not as "appley".

It was my sister in law. So I don't put much stock into what she says anyways.
