I am in a dilemma. I have been lagering a very light beer for a couple months now and am ready to bottle (I must bottle this beer). I used a clarifier, so most of the yeast will not be transferred to my bottling bucket and I do not think there is enough to carbonate the beer in a decent amount of time. I have been told that adding fresh yeast will not effect the flavor of the beer as that has already been established during fermentation. However, it seems like adding yeast now will undo my efforts to clarify the beer.
Will pitching a vial of yeast to 5 gallons effect an individual bottle's clarity?
If so, is there an option other than force carbing and using a beer gun?
