Well if fermentation didn't happen, either there were:

1) No fermentables in the bottles
2) No live yeast
3) There were both, but conditions prevented the reaction.

If you wait until all the gunk on top drops to the bottom you'll end up with a clearer batch. As that stuff falls it will pick up other sediment in suspension.

Low alcohol content; why?

I just made a tasty stout (it's delicious actually), but the alcohol content seems a bit low. I had a few and wasn't even feeling it.

Any reason why that might be?

Thanks.

Yeah, this one was my first batch and it turned out very well. Booya!

I've got a stout in the secondary right now. I think I'll bottle it this weekend (or buy a keg).

Bottling vs Kegging

Just bottled and tasted my Pale Ale!

I just finished a Pale Ale batch and tasted it flat. It was good...no tannin taste or astringents.

I think if it tastes good flat is should be pretty good once it's bubbly.

Bottling with honey?

I'd like to try bottling my beer with honey as the primer.

How does one go about doing this?
