It doesn't taste carbonated because all the foam indicates you've lost carbonation in the pour. Listen to Bobby M, make your you get 3/16" line not 1/4" line.

S-04 is bad a**, I keep it cool at 62 and the foam will die back and be done in 3 days tops. Still you want to wait at least 10-14 days though.
