Kegging and Bottling / Uncarbed bottles?
« on: February 19, 2010, 06:16:19 PM »
Brewed up a Two Hearted clone the day after Christmas with the brand new burner Santa brought for me.  Was shooting for a 1.072 OG, but since it was my first time using my new burner, way underestimated the boil off volume and only ended up with a little under four gallons of 1.083.  Used a starter (1056) and got it down to 1.014 after a couple of weeks, transferred to the secondary and dry hopped for a week.  Bottled on January 19th.  Had the bottles sitting in our basement - about 50-55 degrees.  After a couple of weeks I cracked one open and there was no carbonation and tasted super sweet (priming sugar).  Realized it was probably way too cold down there, so I brought them up and put them on top of the fridge in our kitchen (65-70 degrees). Two weeks later, just cracked open one and still very little, if any carbonation.  Are these beers screwed?  Anything I can do to save them?  Should I have added more yeast when bottling?  Any help is greatly appreciated!
