15 days in bottles and no head or carbonation. I know about waiting, but this hasn't happened before. OG was 1.062. I can usually have a beer at this point and get good carb and head on it. Used about 7/8 cup corn sugar for bottling. Any thoughts?

Room temp for carbonation, and I'd let them go another 14 days. If still no carbonation, taste it and see if It's sweet. This would indicate that you have sleepy or dead yeast. How much head space in the bottles? You might stir them up before resting them for another 2 weeks.

Roll the bottles around to rouse the yeast and then find a warm place for a few. I used to put them on top of the refrigerator because it was the warmest area in the kitchen.
