I did use the 5oz bag and boil it in the water, per instructions. I have not tried either the shaking (well, I did once, not for several days) nor adding more sugar. The idea of adding more sugar came up previously but I have been busy and forgot. I think I will try both in the coming days.

I have been shaking them everyday since Saturday, I tried one last night and there was more carbonation for sure . I would not crack the open just yet.

I experimented with one bottle. Shook it for a few days, cracked it open tonight and sure enough....more carbonation. I was pretty ecstatic. I am still going to try adding some sugar though to some bottles to see what has a more desirable effect.

If you shake them everyday for a week you will get full carbonation. At least mine did

Tried the same formula with several bottles....totally random results. I would say I have gotten "normal" carb out of maybe, 1 out of every 5 bottles. Very disappointing. I also opened a 6 pack and added some sugar. That gave me absolutely no different result.

Call Jasper's and speak with , I believe his name was Jim. He offered to send me a new kit if they did not carb.

I found a formula that has worked in my situation. If I shake a bottle approximately 24 hours prior to opening, it has a good amount of carb. It's a pain, but it's better than wasting the batch.

I may contact them as Point City advised, but it HAS been a while and the beer is half drank.
