Am dealing with bad bottle caps or something of the like? At weeks I popped them into the freezer for 30 minutes and it was perfectly carbed, floated a bottle cap on it. Set the remaining bottles aside for a few weeks to save them for a birthday party.
Fast forward to today and I pull one from the fridge and it's 100% flat. Pull another one, it's mostly flat like a 1 week old beer (it's 4 weeks old at this point). Pull a 3rd beer and it is also flat. Go into my closet to grab a warm bottle and it is perfectly carbonated. What the hell is going on here? I went through all of the bottles, the caps look good and evenly crimped, no issues with bulging or tilting but the bottles are randomly carbonated.
I dumped the priming solution and racked on top of it in the bottling bucket. I used the usual Oxygen absorbing caps from the LHBS. If it was a mixing issue I would of known from the bottles I Just opened. I normally bottle the first 24 in a case and the last 24 into 6 pack carriers. So far 6 pack have been carbed and the first set of 24 have been flat that where directly mixed with the priming sugar. Nothing is sweeter tasting, if I let the carbed beer sit it tastes the same as the flat, just warmer.
This beer was lagered but not long enough to be an issue with yeast count. Should I take them and roll them and put them back in the closet? (Temp isn't an issue, my house is in the upper 70s)
