I have always just left my bottles in my basement to carb up but the temp dropped to 57 one night & I think my yeast went in to hybernation. I have moved them up stairs to where it stays around 70 & have them wrapped in a blanket too. But still no fizz.... I guess my plan is to just wait & try one once a week to check. Is there anything else I can do?

swirl the bottles around to get the yeast kicked up and moving a little, but... in the end... you'll just have to wait and see how they are progressing.

If the yeast went inactive, they will perk right back up once you get them into proper temps.

I'd let it sit for about 2-3 weeks before sampling again. It usually takes a bit longer than that to carbonate.

Yeast doesn't die at 57F. Give them time. It may take more time than you want them to carb, but they will.
