Hey guys, I kegged two batches back in May, one with honey and the other with brown sugar. I know I got the mixtures right but the batch with brown sugar did NOT prime.

The batch I used honey in worked great and is perfectly primed.

Do I try & re-prime while the brew is still in the keg or maybe try force carbing it?

Thanks in advance.

I'd just try force carbing at this point.

Make sure you don't have a leak on that keg, too.
