I brewed my first batch of kit beer that required a kind of "secondary fermentation". That is after it was done fermenting I transferred it to another carboy and added the bourbon barrel wood chips. After 4 weeks, bottled it with recommended priming sugar. This is my first failure in brewing beer.
After over 3 weeks it has no/zero fizz. The beer is ok but without the co2 it is not good. Any ideas on:
- What went wrong? What killed the yeast?
- How to salvage it? Rebottle it? Buy a keg and co2 system and pour it in?
Thanks for any advise you can provide. Bob
