By the way, the photo below is from last night. This is after a day of gelatin. Clear and tastes good.
The only way you are going to get it to carb up in 4 days would be to chill it in the fridge, hook it up to 30 psi for 24 to 48 hours, then lower the pressure to 12-14 (depending on how you like it) and release the excess pressure. Start pulling a few pints each night to try it out. If it gets too carbed, you will need to unhook it from the gas and release the pressure in the keg to allow the CO2 to escape. If it isn't carbed enough, just bump the pressure up a little bit for a day and then lower it back down.
In the future, it is much easier to just set the keg in the fridge on 12-14 psi for about 2 weeks and it should be good to go at that point. I usually do it that way and you can get a few pints starting about a week, though they really won't be that carbonated, but still very drinkable
