Thanks poptarts. Never heard of CBC-1 but will pick up some tomorrow. Given my plans to heat

Posted in thread: Another "beer didn't carb" question on 12-23-2013 at 12:07 AM
My bottled beer didn't carbonate. Have read other lack of carbonation questions but they don't

I ferment in a dorm fridge with a temp controller at 20 C (68 F). Dry hop with pellets for a
