Bring them out of the fridge and let them warm up for a couple days. They should take off on their own but if they don't, just roll the bottles a little bit to re-suspend the yeast.Just checked the FAQs and didn't see an answer to my question. I just brewed my first batch and bottled it 2 weeks ago. The beer is quite tasty, but I opened my first one yesterday and while there is some carbonation, it obviously needs to condition further and I'm doing my best to be patient. My question is regarding the temperature. I bottled at 70 degrees and then put it in the frig 24 hours later. I'm now reading that I should have left it out at room temperature for 3 weeks before putting it in the frig. If I take it out and let it go back to room temp, will that help with the carbonation or am I SOL on this one and will just have to wait a couple of months before I get some good carbonation?
BTW, I'm a noob here, but the advice here has been golden.....Can't wait to get started on my second batch. I'm only doing kits right now until I get the hang of it.
Very good. Thanks! I've been telling my friends that home brewing is very similar to the Chemistry Labs in high school/college. The only difference is that when you're done with your "experiment", you have beer!Bring them out of the fridge and let them warm up for a couple days.

Congrats on the first batch and welcome to HBT!
