What were you using for water and priming sugar?

Did you try liquid yeast, or dry brewer'* yeast?

Edit:
I've always wanted to try this:

They're the first civilization known to have brewed beer.

i also tried allowing extra time for fermenting and bottle conditioning, and i still had the chalkiness

That'* what the granulated sugar did to me, too. I stopped using it back in early 2005 for that reason.

The Cooper'* carbonation drops from www.williamsbrewing.com have much better results in my beer.

I'm stepping in here a little late but Will'* beer at WCBF, well if I wasn't driving... I like a good, solid, aroma-filled beer. The Bud Light cow **** is good for putting out camp fires
