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

I racked my porter a couple nights ago, and like always, I had a heck of a time getting the

Thanks. I did a little more reading and it sounds like the maple taste comes out a little
