I'm on my 3rd keg of beer vs one keg of cider (my wife drinks the cider and doesn't drink as fast as me). I'm just under the impression that ciders require a higher pressure.
I'm fighting the same issue. Beer on tap is perfectly carbed after about a week. The cider has little carb. I have a single regulator with a two way split. I'll shut off the beer line, and up the carb level on the cider to 35-40 and burst it for a few minutes. Then I'll reset it to see in level (15 as its a summer beer that needs some fizziness) and go about my day. It seems to be working. Iirc, my first cider did take longer to carb than my beer, almost 3-4 weeks to be perfect using a similar method.
If there's a better way, I'm all ears. My wife will be super happy if I can get her cider ready asap.
