Does this mean its carbonating?
Are you turning the gas off at the tank each time? If yes, then yes, it's absorbing co2...but you should leave the gas on the whole time to force carb. At this point, turn it to 30 and leave on for another 12-24 hrs, purge, then turn down to 10-12, as yooper said.
Turning down to 3 for serving will definitely de-gas your beer over time, so i would suggest you get longer beverage lines (3/16") to be able to pour at the correct psi. Bev lines are cheap, less than 10 bucks for 10 feet.
