I'll be doing this tomorrow. I'll let you all know how it goes.
I'm in Colorado in high altitude and it makes a difference. I find the 5 pumps it takes to make regular soda sometimes come out less carbonated than I like - almost like a light carbonation you would find in RedBull.

So I'll try different things and take my time so I wont waste any precious homebrew.

I just forced carb some beer using a homemade cap that fixes on 20oz and two litter soda bottles. I only carbed about 8oz. It was what was leftover after bottling. It worked great but it did expand. It would "explode" if you don't let the gas out slowly. I see no problem with this method just make sure you have room in the bottle for the beer to expand after carbing.

It really helps to put the whole thing in the refrigerator and to leave it on the carbonator for well over an hour. You will definitely get more carbonation absorbed in colder liquid, that's basic physics (which I teach). Totally works, but requires patience.
