Title: Extra yeast for bottling
Post by: edvinjonsson on June 11, 2012, 05:20:41 PM
I'm bottling a lager tomorrow that's been in the fermenter for 8 weeks now. Do you think I'll need more yeast for bottling or would I be fine without it? I've never made a lager before so I'm not sure.

I think you'll be fine but I'll leave it to others to verify.  I know a 1/2 pack of dry yeast is cheap and easy if you're not sure.  But, I bet you'll still get enough off the bottom when you siphon, even if you're super careful, that it'll be fine.

Unless it was a very high OG, my experience is that you should be fine without more yeast.
