Home Brew Beer is flat – Follow up 2 weeks later

A couple of weeks ago I posted that my 2 recent brews were flat after 4 weeks since bottling. I had bottled the beers and stuck them straight down to the shed in the cold spring weather. Two weeks ago I moved the bottles and left them in my house next to a radiator and wrapped in 2 blankets. We’ve also had some of the best weather this year recently, which must have helped secondary fermentation.

After trying one of each beer the result is that they’re both getting fizzy. The Wherry is what I would expect from a Woodfordes kit and pretty fizzy with a good head. The Blushing Blonde isn’t as fizzy but is much better, you can see bubbles in the beer and it has a slight head – I’m not too sure what to expect from this experimental brew. Two weeks ago when I tried both of the beers they were completely flat.

I’m not sure if leaving the beer for an extra couple of weeks or keeping them warm has given me a fizzier beer with head but something worked! I’ll think for future brews I’ll keep the beer bottles in the house warm for 2 weeks from now on to make sure!

Any suggestions please leave a comment.
