Notes:  Majority of bottles not carbonated after 3 weeks.  Attempted rescue method with 3 bottles by shaking small portion of dry champagne yeast into bottles and recapping 1/24/2015. Opened on the 3 bottles 1/31/2015 to perfect carbonation and taste.  Began rescue method with remainder of bottles but opened 5 in a row that sounded perfectly carbonated upon opening, so I simply recapped them and stuck in fridge. Now I'm just confused...
