Default no carb in bottle

So I know this is a newb question, but I thought thats what foums are for. Well here we go. Bottled a 5 gallon batch of bear. used 4 oz of corn sugar to bottle and then set bottles in garage to carb up. Well then we had a huge temp drop 4 days after I threw them in there. So now all 5 gallons in the garage are at 34 to 40 deg F. Opened one up and no carb. Now what I was wondering is if I can just bring the bottles indoors at 70 deg and will they start to carb up again or am I screwed. Maybe shacking them up or something. Any feedback would be great. Thanks

Yeah bring them in and let them warm to 65-70. Closer to 70 is better. Give them 2-3weeks should be good to go.

Bring them inside and don't look at them again for 3 weeks. Make sure once you refrigerate them to give them at least 48 hours.

I do not think they will ever carb up the correct amount because you only used 4 oz instead of the recommended 1oz per gallon, which would equal 5 ounces. I made the same mistake when I was a newb and the result was under carbbed beer.

Well They seem to look ok. I guess I should have said after trube and all it was about 4.5 gallons. I did under carb my first batch back last year in Feb. I did learn from that.
