My first batch of cider is not carbonating, any reason why? Actually they have very very few bubbles, rather flat.
I used one Northern Brewer carb tab for each 12 oz bottle.
The gravity reading was 1.00
2nd fermentation for about 3 weeks
They were bottled three weeks ago
Do i just need to give it more time, the beer that i bottled same day carbonated just fine. They are being stored in my basement.
Should i just use dextrose to carb, add yeast or yeast nutrient prior to bottling?
PS: i’ve been reading a bit more of this forum and should note that when i reracked for 2ndary fermentation i did not add any additional sugars, just let it sit as it minus the lees.
I have three other 1 gallon batches that i wanted to bottle today, including a perry and a cranberry that have been in 2ndary for at least three weeks with no additional sugars.
