Do I need to add more yeast?
« on: July 18, 2012, 08:33:04 AM »
Greetings.  I have an American Brown Ale that has been in the primary for 2 months.  Will there still be plenty of yeast in suspension to facilitate bottle conditioning?  Or, should I add some dry yeast at bottling time?

Thanks,
Brandon

I think there will still be plenty of yeast still in suspension.  On the other hand, there's no harm in adding a little at bottling time if it's worrying you.
