bottled my first batch

Recommended Posts

Half of my bottles didn't carbonate after the two weeks, what did I do wrong? the bottles were clean and I used the right amount of sugar.

It often takes longer than 2 weeks. Make sure they around 70 degrees and let them sit for 4 weeks.

We recommend 3 weeks fermenting and 4 weeks carbonating and conditioning at room temp, then refrigerate just what you will drink 3 days later, leaving the rest at room temp.

If you did everything correctly just give it more time.  Slowly inverting then letting them sit for a few more weeks is a great idea.  It will be ok.

I'm starting into my 2nd week after bottling my first ever batch with the LBK and I was kinda wondering about it myself. Most of my bottles weren't "hard" yet, but it's comforting to know it can go longer than 2 weeks if necessary. Can it stay at room temperature in the bottles indefinatly (until I'm ready to drink it, that is. lol)?

Patience isn't a virtue for home brewing. It's a requirement.

Relax, don't worry. Have a home brew.
