The Pub / Why does Brew Masters keep changing nights?

Is it a sign that it's not doing well?

I'm just refering to wanting to drink a beer without drinking the whole 32 ounces at one time.  If I put the rest back in the fridge, will the carbonation last for a little while without going flat?  Or, do I need to drink all 32 ounces within a certain amout of time to avoid having it go flat?

If I were to pour 12 to 16 ounces from the bottle, how long would the beer left in the bottle stay carbonated?

That would make a lot on sense, Fred.  I'll talk with him when I can and ask when he added the priming sugar.  I'll also ask him to give us a gravity reading if he can.

Since his temps weren't too low for storage, the only other thing I could think is that his caps weren't sealed properly.  But that seems unlikely to me that the whole batch was improperly capped.  Has anyone else ever heard of someone not capping properly?

My ultimate question is, is this batch lost to flatness?  Is there anything he can do?

Need more info

 Were the bottles primed individually? No, it was added to the bottling bucket.
 Was the priming sugar poured into the wort and stirred?  I don't think he stirred it but I'm not totally sure.
 Was the priming sugar boiled with water prior to mixing?  Yes
 What was the gravity? Don't think he measured.
 What was the aging time? One week in the primary, two in the secondary and tomorrow makes three in bottles.
 Was cold crashing involved? Crashing?
 What was the batch size? 5 Gallons
 How much priming sugar? 3/4 Cup
 What kind of priming sugar? Corn Sugar

As I mentioned, he claims to have followed the instructions exactly.  I've used only Midwest kits so far with the five batches I've brewed and have never had this issue.

I've brewed and bottled five Midwest extract kits and have never had a problem with the beer carbonating the bottle.

I have a friend that just brewed his first batch.  He bottled three weeks ago from tomorrow (Thanksgiving) and he tried one today.  He said that it's flat.  I asked him what temps he stored the bottles at and he kept it around 70 degrees.  What do you think his problem could be?  He told me that he added his priming sugar just as the kit directions stated to do so.  Is there any way to save his batch from being flat?

So is Old Fezziwig not available in six packs during the Christmas season?

Boston Lager, Winter Lager, Coastal Wheat, Cranbery Lambic, Holiday Porter and Old Fezziwig Ale.  So to answer you question, no they did not.

I just bought a 12 pack of Sam Adams called Winter Classics.  Coastal Wheat was in the box of twelve.  It's a wheat beer with lemon flavor.  Would this really be a Winter beer?
