Can bottle conditioning be done a second time if it find't work the first time due to a loose cap or not enough priming sugar?

Sure can just pop in a coopers carb tablet in the beer, or measure out the appropriate amount of dextrose or table sugar. Cap the beer and wait your 3 weeks.

ok more of a question along the same line...
Live bottle conditioning....will it increase my alcohol % at all? or just the standard .27% or something?

Without checking software, that sounds about right to me. Maybe as much as .4% if it's pretty highly carbed.

It'll work, but be really careful. I added carb tabs to some beers that I thought weren't going to carb, but either they were slow carbers or weren't warm enough, because I got a couple bottle bombs. So before you add more sugar, make damn sure you're not overdoing it.
