1 st time using glass bottles

Recommended Posts

Is there an easy way to tell when beer is carbinated , since you cannot squeeze the bottle

Yes.  Wait 4 weeks.  Make sure they are at 70 or higher during that time.

Bottle one plastic 12oz bottle along with your glass bottle batch. That way you will be able to see how carbonation is coming along.

Happy Brewing!

Yes that is a good way, and I have done it when I first switched to glass bottles. But if you did everything right on your priming, and as others have said about keeping the temps up, there is no worry and you will have carb in a few weeks.

Just wait. You should be waiting 4 weeks, even if the plastic feels carbed. The carb can expand a bottle, but the beer still needs to absorb the co2, and that usually takes a minimum of 4 weeks with bottle conditioning.
