Default Beers not carbonated in bottles

I bottled a Belgian Triple and a Smoke Porter using 5oz of priming sugar with two cups of water. Today I opened one bottle of each and they are slightly carbonated, a very low hiss when opening the bottle. I kept the bottles in the basement at about 63 degrees. What are the odds that both beers are not carbonated? I've read that maybe it might be too cold in the basement and that's it's going to take longer to carbonate. Any recommendations or advice would be highly appreciated! Please help! Thanks!

Eventually they will carbonate at that temperature. I'd recommend moving them to a warmer 70+ temp room for them to finish carbonating if you want to get to them a bit faster.

The beer is now carbonated after moving the beer upstairs at about 68-70 degrees. Is it okay I move the beer back to the basement at about 64 degrees? Thanks!

It's fine to move them back to the basement.

+1.

You might want to give that trippel 4-5 months of bottle conditioning if you want it to reach it's full potential of deliciousness.

Wow that's a long time to wait for the Belgian triple, I'll try my best. I have 48 bombers, so I will try some every month so I can notice the difference. Cheers!

With some complex and/or high ABV beers, you can have it fast or you can have it at its best. Pick one.
