Default IT WORKS! Under Carbonated Beer - Quick Fix

tip from my Jedi Master/LHBS owner, Derek at Jay's Brewing

Under Carbonated Beer - Quick Fix

just tried this on my under-carbed Belgian Ale and it worked great!

the only downside was that I only learned this recently and could only do it to 4 bottles; the last of the batch

Wow. That is something I never thought of.
I once underpitched dry yeast on a big beer. When it came time for carbonation, the yeast had been over-worked.
I bought another pack of the same yeast, opened every single 22oz bottle, put a tiny pinch of yeast in each one, and re-capped.
Talk about a pain in the butt, but it worked. Had quite a bit of yeast sediment in each one, but the beer still tasted good.

I definately would have tried this first though.

putting the yeast back in suspension is not that amazing.

Yeah, this is why people use stir plates in starters. The more the yeast has contact with the sugar, and not other yeast, the more sugar they can convert.
