    Ok, here is what really worked. I created a starter of Scottish ale yeast and dissolved some
    priming sugar in boiling water. Then I removed caps of flat beer, added some healthy yeast, and
    unscientifi...

    When I made this beer I subbed Citra for Chinook in the boil, and also subbed one ounce of
    Citra leaf for one ounce of Cascade in the dry hop. Turned out FANTASTIC!I believe I did the
    same exact thing...

    So one bottle had great carbonation and the others you opened at the same time did not?Right,
    but I only added prime dose to one bottle so I could see if it worked.Sent from my iPhone using

    UPDATE: Wouldn't you know it, I popped a bottle yesterday, and I've got perfect carbonation. It
    was a bottle that I fed Prime Dose, so we know that works...just takes a little time. I will
    say though ...

    This is what I referring to. The time the priming sugar was added, not the age of the beer.
    Higher ABV beers take more time to fully carb up. Don't be surprised if it takes 3-6
    months.I'll wait. I've ...

    I think you may find an OG of 1.129 may need more than a few weeks to carb up properly.It has
    been 8 or 9 months. Maybe the prime dose needs more than 2 weeks, but this isn't a good sign. I
    have 2 mor...

    UPDATE: I opened one bottle 13 days after adding 2 Prime Dose capsules. Nothing. Flat as an
    iron. I've got 2 other bottles with the stuff in them. I'll let them sit a few more weeks.
    Disappointing. Ha...

    I tossed 2 capsules into a bottle last night, recapped, and have it a shake. When I get home in
    about an hour, I'll check to see if they're still floating around in one piece...[UPDATE: The
    capsules h...

    I got my Prime Dose capsules and will start adding them to my bottles in the next day or two.
    One thing that's lost on me however is am I supposed to break open the capsules or just chuck
    the whole th...

    I'm finding it's really hard to screw this beer up.Sent from my iPhone using Home Brew
