Once I post what I think is a problem here, it usually resolves itself a few days later (as you guys always say it will). I hope this is the case here.

last weekend that it was taking awhile for my beer to carb, but finally last weekend I tried one and it was perfect.
Thinking things were great now, the first two I opened last night were flat. These are the first I have tried since the good one last weekend. I stopped after pouring these two down the sink. They were flat and were not even golden colored like the one last weekend. They have been in the bottles for 4 weeks now after spending a week in the primary and a few days over two weeks in the secondary. I gave most of the others in the two cases a shake and they look like they are still flat, too.
This is my 5th batch of beer in my short career, and I have never had a carbonation problem - even when I added sugar to each bottle as I did with my first batch. I used glass bottles for the first time, so was expecting this to be my best yet. (Last weekend's sample was, but I'm a little worried now.)
Why would one bottle have awesome carbonation and be sparkling gold color, and the others look like they just came out of the secondary? I added the pre-measured carbing sugar to a little water, added that to my bucket, and syphoned on top of it?
Should I continue to wait? I now have kegs and gas, so could I pour all of them into the kegs and force carb at this point?
