I have made an Oktoberfest/Marzen style lager, it has lagered in my temp controlled fridge @34F for about 3 weeks.. i have read and heard from various online sources that there could possibly be enough yeast in suspension to carbonate in the bottle. the beer was pretty clear when i primed and bottled (without adding any extra yeast), i opened one after a week just because i was impatient and wanted to check progress, it hissed when i opened the bottle, the beer was still pretty flat without much bubbling, and no head to speak of.. could this beer still carbonate if left to sit for another 3-5 weeks?.. im in no hurry as i have more beer to drink, but i would like to nip a problem in the bud now, instead of waiting the 3-5 weeks still to have uncarbonated beer. give me your input guys, looking for someone who may have experienced this before.
thanks in advance for your responses.
