You may get bottle fermentation enough to carb but it would probably take months on its own with no priming solution added.
Fair enough.

BryanThompson: The old beer is fermented with yeast from vials and some bottle dregs.

Just out of curiosity, in what range do you think the SG of young lambic is when they blend it?
