Why so impatient? It kills me when I see people say they opened a bottle after just a week, one even posted in another thread and said they opened one after two days. You have to develop patience. I personally don't open until three weeks, but even then, they may be carbed but not completely "ready" until later. As others have said, don't toss it, just be patient.
