Default Anyone tried force carbing with Tap a Draft?

One of the bottles of my latest batch didn't carbonate so I decided to try just hooking it up to the TaD flat and leaving it in the fridge overnight to see what happens.

Got a little bit of carbonation now but still needs a lot more. Anyone else tried this? Any luck?

I've done it using the converted miller home draft system which is almost identical to the TAD. Never tried just one bottle, but here's how I carb up 1-1.5 gal;

1) Chill the beer before adding the co2 or a lot of it will get vented from the pressure relief valve.
2) Let it carb for ~4-5 days on the first cartridge.
3) Replace the cartridge and let it carb up the rest of the way.
4) Enjoy

Hmmm, looks like I'll just have to wait then and give it the 4-5 days. Thanks.
