Extract/Partial Mash Brewing / Re: Coffee Stout - no carbonation

We do boil the priming sugar and rack the beer over it for bottling.  Have never stirred it - sounds like a good idea to consider.

Thanks.

Extract/Partial Mash Brewing / Coffee Stout - no carbonation
« on: February 18, 2012, 04:48:26 PM »
We just brewed a coffee stout.  Used a basic stout recipe, and "dry beaned" crushed sumatra beans in the secondary for about 10 days.  We bottle - and we used the recommended amount of corn sugar (between 3.5 and 4 ounces).  Some of the bottles have little to no carbonation, and others have what I consider as a good amount for a stout.  The bottles that lack carbonation still open with the sound of some releasing air.

Any theories on why the carbonation isn't present?  This is the first time any of our batches have had this problem.
