    I'm at a bit of a loss. 2 tsp per 12 oz bottle at 68 degrees for 3 weeks should have given you
    plenty of carbonation unless your yeast somehow petered out. The only other thing I can think
    of is that ...

    I racked my porter a couple nights ago, and like always, I had a heck of a time getting the
    tubing attached to my auto siphon. I soaked it in hot water and had to push like crazy to get
    it on. I proba...

    2 tsp sounds like an awful lot. When I did the calculations, it came very close to 1/2 tsp. of
    table sugar to get to 2.5 vol CO2 in a 12 oz. bottle. I'm amazed that they have no carbonation.
    I thought...

    I agree with those who are saying to double check your bottling volume. I had a friend who used
    the full 5 oz. for each of his beers. Most came out fine, but his chocolate stout was always

    Try a block of wood to raise the the tap side of the fermentor. The trub layer may redistribute
    to seek the new level, leaving the tap clear. First bottle may have some trub if the tap filled
    with sed...

    I ended up with 47 12 oz and 3 16 oz bottles. I primed with maple syrup and I could taste a
    hint of it on the finish. Hopefully it hangs around after carbonation.

    Thanks. I did a little more reading and it sounds like the maple taste comes out a little
    better as it ages, but I might have undershot the amount I needed by a fair bit. I wanted to
    err on the low si...
