Default Pitch yeast at priming...

I have some Apfelwien that Im not too confident has any living yeast in it.
So Im going to pitch some yeast at bottling, but Ive never done that before so Im looking for some pointers.

Here's my plan, please point out 8if there's any blunders here:

1 Pitch yeast (1 packet dried Nottingham) and priming sugar solution into bottling bucket.
2 Add 6.5 gallons of apfelwein, mix well.
3 Bottle.

?

Thanks,
Tom.

Why do you think there isn't any living yeast?

From what I understand you would not need that much yeast. More like a quarter or half a packet

Never brewed apfelwine. Drinking it once in Sachsenhausen was quite enough, thank you - that's a hangover I'll never forget.

As long as you haven't lagered it for a long time, you should be fine, unless there's something about apfelwines that's different from beer. The dry yeast won't hurt though.
