Default Carbonation question

Morning all happy brew day,

I bottle my very first batch on the 2/1/2013 i left it alone for a good week and a half. I went to check on them this morning an realised that the temperature where they are is sitting around 14C i have now moved them to a place that is 17C how would this affect them in terms of conditioning and carbonation time? How much longer should i leave them before trying one.

Thanks,

Three weeks out of the fridge a a few days in should be fine.

If they're flat when you check, try incubating them warmer at 20-21C. I had a cyser (made with US-05) that sat at ~16C for 4 weeks without any carbonation but then carbed up nicely after a week at 21C.

70F,or about 21C is the temp most of us carb & condition at for 3-4 weeks.
