Default Beer not fizzy enough

My beer in the primary took about 2.5 weeks, then I bottled. I used 3/4 tsp dextrose sugar to each 500 ml bottle. I let them sit in my basement for about 2 weeks and tried them. There was some fizz but not a lot . So it's now been about 3.5 weeks and nothing improved. Still kinda flat. Is there any thing I can do?

how big was the beer? higher OG beers take longer to carb.

What is the temperature the bottles are at? If lower then 70F then place them somewhere warmer and give them another week

Next time you should bulk prime the batch and weigh out the dextrose instead of measuring volume, it is more exact. For more info read this stickie:

Also, before you try one, put it in the fridge for a week. The cooler temps will force more CO2 into the beer
