I bottled the NB Spiced Winter Ale from extract kit last Saturday. I just cracked one to see if it was carbonating I got a slight hiss but nothing when I poured and completely flat when tasted. I know it’s only been 6 days but I was expecting more than a slight hiss. I used the NB priming calculator which called for 3.66 oz of corn sugar for 5 gal. I actually went with 4oz because I was afraid of this very problem. It’s been held at about 70F in the dark since bottling.
My questions are:
- Should I even be concerned or just wait it out another week?
- What are my options if 'm screwed?
