Everything sounds right. What temperature were the bottles sitting at for those 12 days? If it was cooler than 70, it might take longer to carbonate. Plus, if the yeast was dormant (or at least...

I always let my ales like this go two weeks, just to be safe. If you go shorter periods before bottling, I'd recommend checking the final gravity over a few days to make sure it's really done. A...

I'd let them sit for two weeks at a temperature in their fermentation range (56-70F), then move them to the fridge. Otherwise they may not carbonate adequately--and certainly not for a long time.

Were they covered or not? The biggest problem would be skunking, which results from isomerized alpha acids being exposed to sunlight. So your IPA is probably at biggest risk. Cover them with...

Heck, I am trying to get all my other garden plants to watch the hops for some rapid-growing tips. Plant some lettuce seeds and you are eating salad for Sunday dinner.

I've got one, but since the batch is still carbonating, I am not sure how good it is yet. Let me know if you don't get anything else and I will dig up the one I used when I get home.

I do batch sparging, but everything I have ever heard or read clearly says to keep the whole grain bed submerged while fly sparging, that draining the bed compacts it and risks channeling.

Hmmm... my gut says that mashing the specialty grains at least gives them more time to impart their flavor and color--around 60 minutes versus 15-30 minutes for steeping.
