Looks like one of those "airport smuggler" X-rays.

Default Bottle conditioning using Prime Dose tablets

Reviving a dead thread, but I have a tripel that undercarbed. Chilled the bottles in the freezer (to retain existing carbonation), then added a Prime Dose capsule to each bottle, and returned the beer to 75F. It's been almost a month, and the bottles look like anti-pollution ads of plastic bags floating in the ocean. Has anyone figured out a timetable of when these things will fully dissolve?

I had the same problem. I will not use them again.

I have used the Prime Dose capsules. The first 2 or 3 times I used them, they worked just fine. Now the last 4 batches I have done the capsules didn't dissolve. The first two of the four batches were being stored in a friend's basement (65 f) so I didn't know that it had happened, so the second two batches I am keeping at home, conditioning at around 70-72 f. Lets hope the warmer temps will allow them to dissolve.

If they haven't dissolved within a couple hours at 70f I'd contact Northern Brewer and ask for a refund.

Well, I had two bottles I was using to test carbonation levels, poured them out, and the undissolved caps clogged the neck. When poured out I had these intact condom-like capsule halves floating around in the beer. Looked gross, felt gross (accidentally tried to drink one...)

I think for the rest of the batch I'm going to open the capsules and dump the contents into the beer.
