How long has it been in the bottle? How much sugar did you use to prime? There's not much to go on here at the moment.

I used 5 oz of priming sugar. For 5.50 gal. And it's been in the bottle for three weeks

So, is the problem the carbonation level or the taste or what?

uspsdriver 02-14-2013 11:33 AM

No the carbonation is fine. It just don't tast like the one I keaged it has a slight funky tast

When it comes to funk, most off flavors are the result of an error in sanitizing somewhere. Here's a useful chart that can help you determine the off flavor and what typically causes it: http://www.howtobrew.com/section4/chapter21-2.html

If I had to guess, with the limited info we have Id say you have a sanitation issue with your bottles. What is your cleaning proceedure? Or you could have a light/skunking issue. Did you bottles get exposed to UV light at some point?
