    Sounds about right . Well, if anything it may just be due to variance in sanitation from bottle
    to bottle . I'd wait it out - time will help with carbonation and consistency . The number one

    Also - be cautious of how strong of star San you use in bottling: I find 5ml/gallon is more
    then sufficient . If its too strong , it can kill what yeast may be left so carbonation can be
    less due to t...

    Yeah do go through the lot and see which ones didn't carb up right. In general, I give my beers

    I need to invest in an Airstone for pre-fermentation aeration of the wort. I think once your
    yeast is pitched( at a high rate of coarse), the only time you have to worry about O2 level in
    your ferment...

    yeah, I had a packet smash behind a bottle in the beer fridge, and i just kept it cold, and
    once I wanted to brew.. took it out, warmed it in a warm water bath, and shook it. it inflated
    in like two h...

    ahhh thats kinda how I figure it too- level gravity for a week, and the only reason to keep it
    in the secondary is to clarify the beer a little before bottling/kegging. thanks for the
    helpful info gno...
