I don't think it's the priming calculator, it's the fact that you selected 1 volume of CO2. Like I said, that's basically flat. It's not much more CO2 than is present in your warm beer post-fermentation.

Well despite the low amount of priming sugar, the bottle flip technique seemed to work. I popped one of the milds last night and it had a nice, foamy head instead of a ring of weak bubbles. I'll try a few more this week, but so far just flipping the bottle seemed to do the trick.

Color me surprised. Thanks GrogNerd, for the original tip!
