I've had good luck with this. I had a dozen bottles capped, realized I needed to add priming sugar, added it and just kept going. The beer was a dark wheat I believe.

Those un-primed bottles were fine, lower but decent carbonation with less head retention.

I also poured a different batch back into a fermentor, let it finish, and added the correct amount of priming sugar - no spoiled bottles.

I waited until the foam stopped and then recapped. All sounds good and normal?
This, yes this....

Have you finished drinking the batch yet?

After a few weeks still flat, I open the bottles and kegged all but 12 bottles. At this point I figured there was nothing to lose. That was yesterday. I tried a bottle today and it was still flat so I'm praying the beer wasnt oxidized in the transfer and I can force carb it. Fingers crossed!

Another noob the edge of my seat, here (just joined yesterday). How did the kegging go after the bottles didn't carb?

yikes, i got two batches of beer bottled in a similar situation, they are not carbing and i used priming sugar, lol. I thought about dumping them into a keg but decided not to cause of oxidation. how did it go? 4 months and i am still waiting on them to carb, lol!

You may want to try and swirl the bottles around to suspend the yeast again and make sure there somewhere a little bit warmer, but out of the sun.

It was a success. I'm enjoying this beautifully carbed IPA for a couple weeks now. I was pretty careful when pouring into the keg. Got down on the floor and had the keg almost sideways, put my arm in with the beer and gently poured. Tastes great! Only problem is that I held back 12 bottles in just in case. Now I wished I had kegged them. Opened another a couple minutes ago and it's still flat. I'll probably keg these now 11 bottles once I kick the keg.
