the latest beer is an ESB. I'm very happy with the flavor but the carbonation level seemed very low. It will have been in bottles for 2 weeks on wed. I know I should wait longer before trying one but I couldn't resist. I've tasted other home brew a week after I bottled it and they were extremely carbonated and I'm not quite sure whats up. Until I bottled this beer I would always syphon my beer into a new carboy, add the sugar, and then bottle. I then read that it helps to add the sugar into the new carboy, transfer, and then bottle. Supposedly this was going to mix the sugar through the beer more effectively, but I suspect the opposite may have occured. If any one has a theory I would appreciate it.
