Trying to force carbonate for the first time and used the following method: 24 hours at 30 psi (did not shake), purged keg and set to 12 psi for 4 days.

We tapped it today and it's still under carbonated...is there anything we can do to get more carbonation? Looking to drink it today

The only way to speed it up would be to shake it

was the beer cold when it was set at 30 and 12 psi? Cold beer will absorb CO2 much faster than room temp beer. Hope this helps some.
