Not sure how to force carb.
It's easy! You just set the psi to the correct pressure, often about 12 psi at 40 degrees and put the kegs in the kegerator with it hooked up. In about 10 days, they are carbed up. You keep it at the same pressure, all of the kegs, all of the time.
There are other ways to make it happen faster, like using a higher psi for the first 24-36 hours. But if you have a 4 way gas splitter, that's hard to do because you could overcarb some kegs while trying to do this.
