Good morning my fellow beer enthusiasts,
I am having a bit of a carbonation issue with a batch of my Sprecher Abbey Triple clone. The carbonation in the bottles has been wildly inconsistent. While I have found a handful of bottles that have been normally carbonated, lately I have been finding dud after dud. The ones that are carbed taste wonderful and is pretty spot on, but the ones that are not taste very poor.
Looking for some possible options that I may have to try and carbonate/recarbonate the batch. Looking at all the bottles, they have a layer of yeast at the bottom so that does not seem to be the issue. Perhaps the sugar did not get mixed very well?
What would be the best solution to try and remedy this:
(1) Open them all up and dump a few mL of sugar water in, shake and let sit a few weeks?
(2) Open them up and throw in a mixture of yeast/sugar water, shake and let sit a few weeks?
(3) Open them up and throw a carb tab in, shake and let sit?
(4) Other ideas?
Only other concern would be if I pop a bottle and it gives the normal burp to indicate it’s properly carbed…do I just recap that knowing it’s ok or do I need to re-prime it to get the carb level proper again?
Thanks for any advice and cheers!!!
