So my first brew is a failure unfortunatly......... well on a bright note i think i know what i did wrong. As far as carbination it tastes great, but there is no carbination. When i was priming the beer i added the sugar and water mixture then began to pour the beer from the priming bucket, nothing but white content came out so i poored it off to a waste bucket to the side (i belive this is because i didn't stir the primed brew). I also submerged my bottles in iodine and dumped iodine out, but i realize untill after bottling there was proubly about 1/4 of a ounce of iodine solution in the bottle when i was bottling the beer. Is there any possible way to save my brew, or should i just ditch it and start over on a brand new brew?

Mr. silv3rbull3t, I don't understand what you're talking about. I see a few different topics and you're all over the place! Give us one issue at a time please.

I guess wait and see is what I would to, if I understand you correctly. If you dumped most of the priming solution, the beer might not be carbonated, but the only way to know is to wait and see.

I have had this problem myself in the past. If you find the beer tastes good then all is well. If however, the brew smells funky and tastes bad, well then you might have to punt and give 'er another go. Try adding the priming sugar to the brew as you transfer from the carboy to the bottling bucket. This will give you a more even distribution of the priming sugar. As far as the Iodine goes you shouldn't really taste it in the brew.

The beer taste's fine...........

The problem is theres no carbination. I added the priming sugar to the bottling bucket as i transfered the beer, however i didn't stir everything up

Is there anyway to save the brew? (add carbination)

If you added priming sugar to water and then added to the bottling bucket without mixing it well...you run the risk of having bottles with too much carbonation and some with too little.

What temp have you been storing the bottles at? I found that unless they were at 70 degrees plus..nothing happened.
