I brewed the stout of my dreams back on Monday the 7th of August. It's a 9.5% imperial which hits all my buttons. I then bottled it on the 24th of August, adding the appropriate amount of sugar to the priming vessel before filling the bottles.
Unfortunately it transpired that I made the sugar paste too thick, and as I got to the last few bottles I could see way too much sugar sitting on the bottom of the vessel, meaning it hadn't made its way into the bottles! Pushed for time I had to cut my losses and see what happened.
Here we are now on the 12th of September, and despite being held at 18 degrees c, the carb level on the stout of my dreams is miserable. I want to save this batch, and I'm considering one of three options:
Open the bottle, add brewing sugar, recap the bottle, move on to the next bottle.
Open the bottle, add a mixture of brewing sugar and yeast cake, recap the bottle, move on to the next bottle.
Open the bottle, add a mixture of high krausen yeast starter and sugar, recap the bottle, move on to the next bottle.
What would you do, and why?
