Sorry for the long pause; I have been on work travel. After leaving my last batch in for 7 days, the carbonation has been wonderful. I did use dry malt extract as the carbonation material this time instead of dextrose (I was out of dextrose
), so I don't know if that makes a difference. Viva la long fridge period!
That being said, I split the batch to dry hop half and mismeasured on the second half - I used 3 oz of DME thinking that it was dextrose; whoops! That made the carb level at somewhere around 1.8 vice the 2.5 I was looking for. Any chances of fixing it, you think?
