thanks for the replies guys,

I used one drop per 330ml bottle,

thanks triplehazard, i think once i use up this next pack of drops ill use regular sugar, although i havent had a problem before with the drops,

I have been doing some reading and another brewer mentions that if you leave the beer in the fermenter for 3 weeks or more like i did, it will take a long time for the beer to carbonate as most of the yeast has dropped down to the bottom,

So im thinking i might just bottle my beers after 2 weeks from now on.

Yeast doesn't floc out that fast. I tend to leave my beers in primary for a month and have no problems carbonating. You should be able to leave your beer in primary for several months before you need to worry about yeast for carbonation.

How warm is the room in which you're storing your beers? It needs several weeks at 20C. If you are any lower than that, it can take longer.

If you bottled these just before New Years, and you stored them at 20C for the entire time, they would likely be carbonated or very close to fully carbonated now. If they were too cold for several of these weeks, you have more waiting to do. Warm them up!
