Slow carbination
Brewed a BB Imperial Nut Brown. 3 weeks in bucket.....then bottled. Tried one after 1 week in bottle. No carbonation, or at least, very little. Normal? Every other beer I've made I've tried after 1 week at it was carbing up ok.

3 Weeks at 70 degrees is the rule of thumb. Each beer will carb at different rates. Check one in 2 Weeks and let us know!

In case you hadn't noticed, it's winter and places that were 72 in October might be 65 now. That really affects the rate at which your beer carbonates.

Yea man. At least wait three weeks. I leave mine carb a little low than 70 and still have good results.
