Default Bottling tips

I've had a few beers sitting in the secondary for two months now, I've always bottled after about 2 weeks In the secondary. With it sitting for so long now is there anything special I need to do now before I bottle or just add my one cup of sugar to my bottling bucket an go crazy? Thanks guys!

Nope. If it's less than six months, I never worry about adding more yeast. Just pick up a little of the yeast at the bottom of the fermenter when you rack. Just touch the bottom to kick some up and pull it above the trub again quickly.

Really? That doesn't make your beer cloudy after letting sit for two months to clear? And all that cheap sitting at the bottom of the carboy is yeast?

That yeast has flocculated once, it does it again really quickly.
