Default Lack of carbonation

I just got done opening a bottle of some all grain IPA and DAMIT there’s no carbonation. I cleaned rinsed and primed. I did not get all the way to my FG it did get hot in the house. Did it kill the yeast and if it did can I rebottle with new yeast. It tastes Ok if you like flat beer. The rest of my batches carbonated fine. Im new

How long have your bottles been conditioning? If you didn't reach your FG, I actually think that would add EXTRA carbonation to your bottles. It takes around a week to get decent carbonation going depending on the brew. Did you use 3/4 cup dextrose sugar dissolved in pre-boiled water? Was it mixed evenly throughout the beer before bottling?

It sat for 2 week in the fermenter about a month in the secondary and 3 weeks in the bottles. primed it with 3/4 cup corn sugar.

At what temp? It needs to be in about 70 + degrees to bottle condition...in most cases. If your "holding room" is colder than that it can takes weeks or months to carbonate.

Hmmm, maybe one of the more experienced guys can chime in here but I don't know why there isn't any carbonation. It sounds to me like you did everything right...

Could the temp got to high and killed of my yeast? If so could I just rebottle with new yeast?
