I just opened my first bottle of my first batch of homebrew in 15 years. It's a black bock based on an old recipe of mine that I used to make regularly. It has been in the bottle for 43 days so I had hoped to have it ready for Labor Day. I just wanted to check the color, aroma and the taste. When I opened the bottle a cidery smell hit me right away. I poured a glass and there was no sign of a head at all. It looks like there is no carbonation taking place in the bottle at all. I had liquid malt, dry malt and one pound of honey as my main ingredients so in the past I've had to let my honey based beers go a little longer in the bottle stage to have the taste come around to where I wanted it. With no signs of carbonation though, I've never had this problem before and I used to cook for 10 years before I moved to Texas and got out of the habit. If I let it go a couple more weeks and still no sign of life, what can I do to try to salvage my beer? What would be the odds of re-priming it at this stage and put it back into carbonation? Any comments will be greatly appreciated as I really want to get back into brewing. I have two more batches going now with the last one just bottled today. Too early to check them yet.
