Did you try switching the connections to make sure you are using the correct gas side?

How long have you had the keg on gas? It takes at least a week under standard serving pressure to get to the right carbonation without force carbing.

Force carb it at 15 – 20 psi cold for 2 days; check the beer and reduce or continue. It also really depends on your beer style, serving line length and temperature. That would be great if we could just keg, hook up the co2 and serve; but nature does not allow – damn nature… always making me wait!

There are psi / serving-length beer style sheets here on HBT, might be worth a look; I just ate a bunch of Irish food and beer so too lazy to search but it’s here! I promise!

Force carb at 30-40 psi for twenty four hours and shake it good for about 2 minutes about ten hours into it. After 24 hrs, turn down the psi to 10 or 11. You will be very happy with the first pour you make.
