Default Bottling Bourbon-Aged Beers

For my next batch I was going to experiment with racking a porter or stout onto boubon and bourbon-soaked oak chips in secondary.

I've never left beer in secondary for more than a few weeks before, nor have I ever put alcohol into my beer. Could I prime and bottle as normal without worrying about having to add more yeast to replace what may have fallen out of suspension/been killed off by the booze?

Thanks...I tried searching and couldn't find the answer.

I would say yes. I did a bourbon oak stout and it came out great after just a few weeks with the oak chips. I used about 1.5 oz heavy toasted soaked in Jim Beam Black for about a month. It carbed up just fine, actually mine came out a little too carbed in my opinion. I don't think the alcohol will affect the yeast at all.
