Default Do I need to add more yeast?

Greetings All,

I have a light lager that has been in the primary for 10 days, 2 days rest, and has been sitting in the secondary for 3 weeks. Will I need add more yeast for carbing purposes?

Thank you in advance. I really enjoy this site.

Thanks,

Mike

If it is under 6-8 months there is plenty of yeast to do the job.
