I have 8 flip-tops from my last batch that did carbonate (flip tops were too loose)...Is it possible to carbonate or will I be drinking these last few flat (they taste great - Stone Pale clone)....Thanks!

If you have a co2 tank, you could put them in a plastic bottle and carbonate them with the carbonation cap sold at most homebrew shops.

You mean they did NOT carbonate, right?

Put a level teaspoon dextrose (or table sugar) into each bottle and recap. No problem.
