Under Primed Bottles

Post #1 made 5 years ago
So my last batch of Amarican Pale Ale was cold crashed for several days, and then Bottled. The bottling Carbonation Calculator said to use a rather small amount of sugar to prime. It told me that because I told it the wrong info. :idiot: The beer is tasty, just kinda flat :roll: . My question is, can I top up my bottles so to speak with a calculated bit-o-sugar, recap, and drink in a week or so?

You can reprime but you will then have to allow it to referment and condition again. And make a sugar syrup cos if you just add a spoon of sugar you will release a volcano of foam.

Lets see, I think that its beet in bottles going on 4 weeks. I condition at around 60-65* because that is the space I have. I put 6 bottles up high in my kitchen where it is warmest, and those are no better.

If you pop the cap and add a few cartabs. You should be OK. The light carbonation should have the bottle filled with C02. The C02 should keep any oxygen out and not cause oxidation? The bottle my erupt when the cartabs (4?) are added? :argh: Good luck! :luck:
tap 1 Raspberry wine
tap 2 Bourbon Barrel Porter
tap 3 Czech Pilsner
tap 4 Triple IPA 11% ABV

Pipeline: Mulled Cider 10% ABV
