Haven't seen mine yet either. Nothing like getting the Nov/Dec issue in January!

Not brewing, but still trying to squeeze in some work.

Transferring/dry hopping 10g BIPA
Bottling 2.5g RIS
Bottling 5g Bock if time allows.

Bottling: 5g Belgian Pale Ale
Rack to Secondary:  5g Bock

Brewing unfortunately waits until next weekend.

Kegging and Bottling / Repitch for bottling?

Long time reader, first time poster. 

Last weekend I brewed an Imperial Stout (SG 1.120) and plan on keeping it in the primary for 3-4 weeks and then bottle it.  I'll condition it in the bottle as long as I can stand it.  I used Wyeast 1728 Scottish Ale yeast.

My question is, will I need to repitch at bottling time, or do you think the yeast will have enough in their tank to carb up.  I plan on using DME for priming.

If I need to repitch, I was thinking US-05 dry yeast.  Would it need to be rehyrated, or could I just pitch it in the bottling bucket before I rack. 

Thanks for any feedback!
