So, I opened one beer from my each of my first two batches yesterday, and was surprised to find that there was no carbonation. I will say, according to the instructions, they need another week in the bottle (they’ve only been in the bottle one week thus far), but I would have expected there to be at least some carbonation going on by now.
I have been storing the bottles in the basement, which is usually between 63 and 65 degrees. Could this be attributing to the low carbonation rate, (i.e. would it do better if I moved it upstairs where it’s warmer?)
Any help/advice is appreciated. I know I need to be patient, but I’m eager to taste the final product!
