If it's literally flat then even a leak wouldn't explain it; that would mean no gas was getting in at all. Is it just UNDER-carbonated?

I don't know that I'd rely on any listening for bubbles to know when to stop. Bubbling would mean that the gas stem was submerged, which I try to avoid. Plus the great thing about carbonating at serving pressure is you can't over-do it. Shake 'til you're scared.

I have tried many methods and I now simply use the "Burst" carbonation method described by Marshall over at Brulosophy. Simply put:
1. Get beer really cold (32-40 degrees)
2. connect gas as usual and set PSI to 30 PSI
3. Wait 18-24 hours.
4. Vent headspace, reduce to serving , and check carb level.
5. As long as it's close, you should have perfectly carbed beer by leaving it cold and at serving PSI within 2-3 days.

+1  I've been doing this recently as well.  Works for me, YMMV.

I will give this a shot. Yet another random issue I ran into was that I couldn't get my regulator to go about 27 PSI. Hurray me.
