Default Time to get to fully force carbed (Brown ale)

Hi All,

Just kegged my Goose Island Hex Nut Brown Ale clone, put the keg PSI at 18 for 24 hours, then I will drop to about 6 PSI. Any idea how long to get to FULL carbonation of 2.0 Volumes at 38* ?? I need total time needed from initial keg hookup, beer was very cold when kegged approx 34*.

Thanks for your help !

it usually takes me close to a week for an acceptable amount of carb. two weeks is always better. yours may be a little quicker because you had the psi ramped up at first, but 18 isn't that much higher, so it probably won't be that much quicker. the great thing about a keg is you can pull a small sample everyday if you want and still not have to waste a full beer.
