That just means it isn't properly carbonated. 8 days isn't really enough. The general rule of thumb is it takes a minimum 3 weeks at 70*F for it to be completely and properly carbonated.

Give it some more time. And be sure you refridgerate the bottle at least 24 hours before you're doing to try it.


Here's a great video that details carbonation over time:

Just an update...

I gave this recipe yet another try. I am very thankful that i have had some great help from all of you guys on this thread and another thread I have started for some more general help.

I mashed on Wednesday evening and boiled very late in the night. I boiled down to 5 gallons only because I had a pre boil volume of 6 gallons not 6.5. My post boil OG was 1.049-1.050. I attempted the no chill method before pitching the yeast the following evening. This morning I woke up to a very lively fermentor! In fact I needed to remove the airlock and install a blowoff valve into a old milk jug with a little Sani water in it.

The aroma of this recipe is amazing! Props to the chef!

I am hoping the FG or the flavors won't be messed since I had to install a blow off.

Thanks again! You guys are the best!

I just tried my fully ready version of this recipe tonight, and baby it is good. Even my SWMBO really likes it. The back end of this beer is my favorite part, between the citrus and the wheat, it's a very good beer. Will be drinking 4 gal. During the super bowl.

Thanks for the kudos. And no, installing a blowoff has absolutely no effect on FG or flavors. Airlocks and blowoff tubes are simply tools to allow CO2 to escape

Ha! And the nice thing about it being a session-ish beer is you can drink to your hearts content.

And if your SWMBO isn't a beer person then that is a huge compliment.

SWMBO is not a beer person, she is a once a quarter Blue Moon type gal, so Yes big compliment. I make her taste every beer that I bring home, or make, and this one is one of the few that she didn't make "the face".

I bottled this beauty last night!

My FG held around 1.008ish giving me a 5.5 - 5.6% abv. The color is amazing and the flavor is off the hook!

I can't wait for this... 30day count down has began

Should I scale the grain bill if I want to brew in a bag?

I don't see any reason to unless you get low efficiency. I believe this recipe is set to 75% efficiency. Do you usually scale recipes for BIAB?
