I want to bottle my saison that I brewed back in October 2013. I racked into a secondary and pitched Roselare blend with 3lbs of cherries in Jan 2014. I know it would be idea to keep in secondary, but I've used roselare blend for short periods and then gone into bottles for long conditioning and I liked the results AND space saved..
Anyway, do I need to repitch some yeast before bottling, and what would the best practice be? I only ask because I've heard there can be issues with repitching in high ABV. Right now I'm around 10%. OR is there enough roselare blend that I pitched about 3 months ago in solution to do the carbing?
FYI - I'm going to high volumes of carbonation with my new 750 ml belgian bottles/corker and thought this would be a great beer for the new set up!
Thanks for the help.
