And that job takes time.

I'm at a loss to understand that just because you "don't have patience like the rest of us" you STILL can't grasp that regardless of whether you have the patience or not....You STILL have no control over the process.

No matter how much we may wish for things, it doesn't mean we're going to get them. I've been wishing for twin Irish Redheads to show up at my door in raincoats,stockings and garters, and nothing else for the last 30 years, ready to do whatever my filthy little mind can dream up, and it hasn't happened.....And it probably never will.

We all want things we can't have....We ALL want out beer magically carbed. But the truth is, that if we consider "dumping" all our beers because we open them early and they're not carbed, then we might as well just go out and buy beer.

*shrug*
thanks for the scolding

Right here is the answer. Things are STARTING to get better....emphasis on the STARTING. Starting meaning beginning to....meaning at some point there's a conclusion to the process.

I'm waiting 5 years on a beer dude. I've had beers take 6months to carb....

Many of us leave our beers in primary for a month minimum, and they carb fine. Some of us have had beers in primary 6 months or more and they carb fine.

How long has it been at a warmer temp? How long was it at cooler temps?

Of course this is academic - it's going to take as long as it takes. If you are getting carbonation now, the rest WILL come. Give it time.

I'm going with my HBS recipe recommendations,,,,,,2 weeks fermentation.
You can generally leave beer in the fermenter for months with no ill effects. In general, I leave beer in the fermenter a minimum of 3-4 weeks.
