Usually I keg,but all of my kegs are in use so I had to bottle without force carbing. I used gelatin in my secondary for 1week then cold crashed 3 days. It's been a long time since I bottled with a primer but I used 3/4cup sugar for 5gal,and as I used to I filled 1 plastic bottle to check carbonation. After a few days I cracked the top and.......... Nothing. Any thoughts? Am I checking too soon? Are there just too few yeasties left to carb it up?

It might be that it is really way too soon. I wait 2 weeks and some are close to ready then, but most take 3 weeks and some longer than that.

Thank you. Your most likely right. When I did bottle with primer I never got my beer this clear,and then I'd have some sign of carb after a few days. I guess I need to buy a few more kegs. Or stop loaning them out.:-)
