Default Help, no carbination in the bottle.

This is northern's 115 hop bursted imperial ipa. 2weeks primary, 5weeks secondary 3 weeks since bottling. All I can hear is a tiny piss. When I pour it... I cant get a bubble... Should I open and try to drop some sugar in each one? The beer is very potent I figure the alcohol content was too high for the yeast. Any thoughts?

If you are getting a hiss, then carbonation is underway - your yeast are doing their jobs.

What you have to understand is that three weeks at 70 degrees is the baseline for normal beers. Higher gravity or lower templs can make this take longer.

Don't open them, don't do anything - just give it more time. If you put the right amount of priming sugar in at bottling, the beer WILL carb up, it just takes time.
