Well you know the story, brewed a high gravity beer like the monks. Followed all the steps. 11% ABV. Bottled beer (after waiting 12 weeks) , stored in a room 75-80 degrees for 2 weeks. Went to pop one open, very faint PSST and exactly no carbonation. Flat.
I had done usual priming solution in bottle bucket, always worked in the past with lower gravity beers.
So as I see it these are my options:
- Shake bottles, wait another 2 weeks and test one.
- Open each bottle and put a priming tablet in and recap
- Open each bottle and put a 1/4 tsp of corn sugar and recap
- Open each bottle and gently poor into a Keg and turn on the CO2.
p.s. this was a very expensive recipe and I am on FullTilt right about now.
