I added 1/2 packet of S05 to my priming solution for a 6 gallon batch of Bourbon Ale. Hoping that does the trick.

I brewed a pumpkin ale in the Fall that never carbonated properly. I just opened all the remaining bottles and dropped two prime dose capsules into each one to see if that fixes it. Will let you know in two weeks.

I kegged a Pale Ale about a month ago & had 3 bottles extra. Used 2 per bottle & tried them last week. They were almost too carbonated for my liking. After several minutes in the glass, seemed to level out just about right. I'll try 1 per bottle next time & see what happens. Prost!

I read on a forum post once that pumpkin ales take forever to carbonate. A guy said his didn't carbonate for 3 months. I would google pumpkin ale carbonation and you'll find loads of info.

I miscalculated on some priming sugar recently and got these for at problem. I added 1 to each bottle and it seems to be in the correct range. Cheap they are not but they do work.

So you used 1 tablet per bottle? I thought the recommendation is 2 but that would be awesome if 1/bottle works. I have a gift card at NB and am thinking of trying these out since no cost to me.

Yeah, I accidentally primed to 1.9 vols, of targeted 2.6. So I figured one per bottle would do the trick. These would be super handy for sour and high gravity beers with bottle issues.

Thanks. I will certainly look that up. As for the prime dose tablets, they seemed to do the trick. After 2 weeks, good carbonation in the beer.

Head retention is not great, but I think that has more to do with the glass than the beer?

So I used Prime Dose on a Saison that was 3 months on primary. Used 2 capsules per 12oz bottle after 2 weeks conditioning the beer is well carbonated. Unfortunately the capsules have not dissolved . Anyone else experience this problem?
