Hey - I bottled my first lager - a Czech Pilsner about 18 days ago, with priming sugar. I put them back in my freezer at about 35, and they've been in there ever since. Just cracked one open, there is zero carbonation. Is that because of the temp it's been stored at? I have taken them all out of the freezer to room temp and will let them sit a couple of weeks - will that fix the problem? Newbie lagerer here. All my ales carb up fine within 2 weeks at room temp.

Yes. Put them at room temperature for a few weeks, and they'll carb up.
