Default bottles didnt carbonate?

I recently finished an arrogant bastard clone that recently just hit 3 weeks in the bottles so i figured it was time to start giving them a try.

what i found was something of a shocker...the bottles have extremely low levels of carbonation (of the 6 or so that have been opened) I can detect a very slight tingle from the bubbles on my tongue but there is no head at all.

when i racked from my primary to my bucket i racked it directly on top of my priming solution and didnt stir it because i figured that would have been enough to mix the sugars in.

after looking at all the bottles they all have a very fine layer of yeast on the bottom and are pretty consistent from bottle to bottle

could this be the result of my not stiring it or do i have a bigger problem here as far as suspended yeast is concerned?

What type of bottles did you use? And you only need to ask once.

Edit: Also, at what temp are you conditioning them?
