I'm looking for some pointers -- I made a batch of root beer in bail-top glass bottles. After one week in a dim / cool kitchen, they were only beginning to form carbonation. I had a week-long road trip to go on, so I reluctantly put the bottles into the fridge.

Anyone know if I could / should take them out again, to continue fermentation? When does one give up on waiting for a batch to fizz up?

I am confident of all of these things: fresh ale yeast, residue-free bottles, new rubber seals, tested recipe, fresh ingredients.

Ale yeast dosn't do good in cold tempetures. Let it set out. Unless you used a lager yeast, it wont be very carbonated.

Thanks! I'll post updates on how the batch turns out.
