This is a new one for me. I recently made a ten gallon batch of Hefeweizen and split the batch to make one half of regular Hef and one half of Peaches and Cream Hef (Recipe on this site). Both batches were put on CO2 at the same time, at the same pressure (~14 psi at 40 deg) for about three weeks now. The regular batch carbed up just fine, while the Peaches and Cream still has no carbonation. I have verified multiple times that there is CO2 flowing to the keg. The only difference between the two batches is that peach puree and lactose were added to the Peaches and Cream. Could the puree or lactose make it more difficult for the beer to absorb the CO2?
