Close the lid and DO NOT open it again for 2 weeks, you got any temp control, if not search swamp cooler, your fine but you are hijacking this thread.

I think everyone is misunderstanding his post (or I may be). He bottled after 14 days (on 11/18) but only just tried it yesterday (12/2). That means the bottles did condition (sounds like room temperature) for 2 weeks.

Ime,13 days primary is riding the ragged edge. They sometimes get done in 2 weeks,most often 3 weeks. & 2 weeks bottle time usually isn't enough for carbing & conditioning. 3-4 weels at 70F or a bit more is the norm. Those kit instructions are def off on timing things. That was def thing th eyeasties won't tolerate. They have their own schedule that usually doesn't coincide with ours.
