    If you used the table sugar instead of corn sugar but did not adjust the amount used then you
    did not use enough and that is where the problem is. It's not that they won't carb, they will
    take longer ...

    Just cracked this open last night, and all I can say is "I'm impressed"! I ended up at 1.013
    for about 5.1%. I really like the flavor and aroma of these hops, but it's hard for me to

    Are these big enough for 5 gallon fermenting batches?You'll end up blowing out of the airlock
    on every batch. You'll want at least a 6 gallon carboy or a 6.5 gallon bucket for a 5 gallon
    batch. Even t...
