Wyeast 3787 and bottling
Anyone ever have any issues with bottling carbonation with this yeast?

It's the first time I've used it and it's dropped like a rock after two weeks. Surprisingly flocculant after all the hell it let loose while fermenting. I tried a dubbel at a local tasting and it had low carbonation issues using the same strain, wondering if I should add some fresh yeast at bottling time.

Probably not necessary, but it couldn't hurt...

I have had problems bottle carbonating with this yeast in the past, especially when the % alcohol was high. Now I just add 1/4 pack of notty to the bottling bucket when using this yeast and I have not had any problems since.
