I'm having trouble getting my beer properly carbonated in the bright tank in less than 6-7 days. I've heard other brewers are able to carb their batches in just one day - some in merely a few hours! What seems to be the problem here? Why does my carbonation process appear to be taking forever??

Those who carbonate in a few hours usually don’t use CO2 as part of the process. Instead, they're pumping the beer into a loop, which includes a carb stone. Often times longer-than-usual carbonation in the bright can be the result of temperatures that aren't low enough or a defective carb stone. Check your stone by dropping it in a bucket of sanitizer to see if big bubbles form - if they do, you'll need to tighten the nuts on the stone a bit. If the right pressure is being achieved in the headspace but not in your beer, the carb stone might be the culprit.
