    Last night I had a bottle of Dark Horse's Bourbon Barrel Monster 29 and it lacked carbonation severely. It didn't even make a pop when I cracked the bottle. I knew going into it that none of them were really carbing up. Once I poured it out I noticed there was some sediment on the inside kind of stuck to the bottle. Is that the yeast for carbing it up? Do I need to disturb that and keep it in a warmer area for it to get carbonation?

    Thanks in advance for the replies. The beer tasted delicious... it just needed that carb!

    Looking for this answer myself. I have 1 bottle and want to make sure it's ready before I drink it. I had someone tell me to keep it somewhere kinda warm so that's what I've done. Anyone have any other ideas?
