Sounds like you are mixing the two for some reason...
If you want it to be at about 2.5 (about average) at 40F you should set the keg pressure to 13.3psi... Leave the tank connected and in a few days it will be drinkable.. in a week or little more it will be great!
I think I added pressure to make sure that it was tightly sealed. I'm beginning to see that 15 psi is way overboard for that. So, since I added the 1/3 cup sugar, and have had it at 15 psi, if I lower it down to 13 and let it sit at 40 degrees, it should turn out fine in about a week?
I'm wondering about the combination of adding sugar and having the pressure on it will make it too foamy.
I really need to do some reading up on kegging.
