I would try doing some forced carbonation. Just crank the co2 up to 40 like you do turn your keg on its side and roll it back and forth for like 2 or 3 mins, sit up and let off the pressure, and rest it at the serving pressure for 24 hours you should be good.

He is force carbing. Anytime you use co2 instead of priming sugar, you are force carbing.

Try 3 days @ 30psi then 1/2 day @ 12 psi. Or set it at serving pressure and wait 2 weeks
