Default My chimay red clone did not carbonate

I tried my first bottle of a chimay red clone. It fermented for 30 days and hit the final gravity as it should. I added sugar acording to The beer recipitator web site .

19 days after bottling i opened my first bottle. It had little to no cabonation and was on the sweet side. It has been at about 66 degrees after bottling.

What do i do now?

What was your OG, FG, and what yeast did you use? It is possible that it just needs some more time.

I have had strong dark belgians that didn't carbonate for 2 months. May the patience be with you.
