I’ve done 4 batches now using the fermenter’s fizz drops. One mustache envy kit, one rye stout kit, and a couple maple pumokin ale recipes and they’re ALWAYS under carbed using the fizz drops and I do not know where I’m going wrong.
I use a mix of 12 and 22oz bottles, 2 drops in the 22’s and 1 in the 12’s
I invert the bottles a couple times a day for the first week or so, I didn’t at first and thought maybe the sugar was sitting on the bottom. No change
The caps seem good, I do get a little hiss when the bottles are opened. There is some carb but not enough and ZERO head
I leave in primary for 2 weeks and then a week or two in secondary and I bottle condition for about 4 weeks, I refrigerate one bottle at a time for 24+ hours and then try one so the rest keep conditioning just in case they’ll improve, they never do
it’s drinkable, but I’d like a little more carb. Maybe up it to 3 drops in a 22oz? I’m pretty hesitant to do that.
