Isit possible for for all the yeast to settle out? So much so the bottles won't carb up?

My last few brews are being very stubborn to carb up.

I transfer to secondary with about a tablespoon of gelatin. They all clear up really nice, but I have tried them after about 3 or 4 weeks and they are still flat as a tack.

I brought them inside where it is a but warmer but this didn't seem to help.

Luckily I keg and only bottle a small amount in each batch, but it is very frustrating.

I'm having a similar problem at the moment. The beerfrom the keg is so clear you can read through it............the bottles just aren't carbing that quickly.

Was just listening to a podcast on this on my way into work this morning.

And asked a similar question here.

Cold conditioning for too long

Unless you actually filter the yeast out of the beer or cold condition it for months you will still have yeast left to carbonate your beer.

With the colder weather my beers are taking 3-4 weeks to carbonate.

One thing interesting they do say in the podcast was that you can add yeast back at the rate of about 1 gram per 19 litres or so if required. But dont take my word for it. Read up on it.
