Sounds dumb, but are you positive you added the priming solution? There is always trapped C02 in beer which could explain the small hiss when you open them. Stranger things have happened...

I'm 100% sure that I added the priming solution. I boiled with a cup or so of water, cooled, added to the bucket and racked on top. I also stirred well before filling the bottles.

I did soak the bottles in star san before and there was definitely some foam. However, everything I have read says this is not an issue.

This was an Austin homebrew kit and the bag was clearly labeled priming sugar.

Visually, the caps look fine. I have held several under water with no visible leaks.

My only guess here is mislabeled priming sugar or dead/slow/tired yeast.

I made a Double IPA purchased from Austin Homebrew. It tastes great but also has little to no carbonation. The kit came with 4.5 oz of corn sugar for priming, and I followed the instructions verbatim. What other type of sugar and how much could I use next time to avoid a flat beer?
