Do Not pour out the bottles to remix, you will oxidize the beer and that would be bad, very, very bad
The OG was 1.052. The caps are firmly on - there's hiss when I cracked the ones I've sampled. I weighed out the priming sugar based on a calculation that would give me about 2.7 volumes of CO2. They're currently sitting at room temp, which fluctuates between about 70 and 74, depending on the weather each day.
My guess is that they'll carb up eventually. Good news is that based on the taste of this batch, I think I've nailed my amber recipe to exactly what I want.
