mabrungard:
I can carbonate a beer in about a day with enough chill and CO2 pressure, but it won't be right.  I feel that it has something to do with the 'hydration' of the CO2.  You can get the CO2 into solution, but it then has to hydrate.  That hydration is a slow process.  In my experience, about 2 weeks is needed for the carbonation to become 'normal'.  That beer should be getting close.

gymrat:
Thankyou! Maybe I shouldnt have turned the pressure up 2 more pounds. :-\

topher.bartos:
Yeah, carbonating in a keg takes awhile to get it into solution depending on the amount of pressure and temperature and other stuff...

Maybe put it back under pressure for a few more days if you're not okay with it.
