Bottled a beer about week ago and opened one and it is still not carborized Was using wlp 60 and added 5 oz of dextrose to batch before bottling .

How did you mix in your sugar? I agree with the above that one week is probably just not enough time, but what was your process?

...and because you used the word twice, let me correct you since it clearly wasn't a typo...but you are wondering why the bottled are not carbonating...not "carborized".

1 week is way too soon for it to be properly carbonated. Like the others said, give it 2 more weeks and you should be good.
