I brewed a 5G batch of a double IPA on June 15th. The OG was 1.086 and I used WLP 250 from Rebel Brewer. Fermentation was at basement ambient temperature of about 74*. Sanitation was good and a few taste tests 6 weeks were awesome.
I always keg and force carb, but this time I brewed with a friend and since he was taking half the batch, I opted to bottle. Given the style and gravity of the beer, I gave it a long rest in the primary and opted not do do a secondary as I wanted a little yeast in the bottling bucket when I racked.
I bottled on August 3rd with 5oz corn sugar for priming in solution. I bottled in 12oz brownies with standard crowns at 76*. 2 weeks in, I sampled my first bottle and it tasted great - and has very little carbonation. Ugh. I don't bottle very much, but I was expecting a decent level of carbonation after 2 weeks and didn't expect it to be so still.
So, I am curious if I have an issue here. I can see some yeast sediment in the bottles and the 2 I have tried had no off-flavors. I could uncap them hand hit them with a few priming tabs, but I don't want any bottle bombs.
I'd appreciate any advice you could offer. Thanks,
