To get it fully carbed in two weeks is asking a lot. You'll need them at 70F or a little higher. As you get under 65F the time to carb can begin to approach 4 weeks. And by 60F it may not happen at all.

don't get carried away. This is one of those cases where more isn't always better. Don't go putting them right next to a radiator or a register. I've got several cases "hiding" in the closet right now 'cause my basement is too cool at about 63F. SWMBO just loves that lemme tell ya

BTW what yeast did you use? That can have an impact on how quickly it will carb as well as what the appropriate temp is.

70 is perfect for that yeast. Stay below 75 or you'll get some strange flavours in the finished product.
