I think the OP isn't force carbonating... Just letting it sit. In which case it will take ~8-10 days usually.

My Belgian Blond finally became carbonated at day number 10!

I find that it usually takes ~8-10 days. So, I'd say just wait a couple more days; I think its close. If you have psi set to 25 it will probably be too carbonated. Back it down to about 12-15 psi,...

My experience has been that 3 weeks is appropriate. Your beer should actually be carbonated by two weeks but not as good as it will be if you wait a bit longer. (I actually wait 4 weeks when I...

Dont know much about the kettle you bought but it sounds like a good price for a 10G kettle that already has a ball valve. I'm guessing that it's either used or aluminum.

So, without any other...
