Default High Flocuaton WLP007 and bottling Carbination

I usually use Wyeast Medium to low flocculation strains of yeast. When using this lower floc yeast, I get good carbonation using my formula on how much Priming sugar to use. I do not want to introduce another strain of yeast into my beer on bottling and never have had to.

If a yeast is highly flocculation like the one I used first time called Dry English Ale yeast WLP007, am I gonna have trouble getting carbonation?

Any experience with this and bottling? I am worried that if the beer is too clear, there will be no required yeast to carbonate the beer.

Do I use more priming sugars? What should I do. It is an Irish Dry stout with O gravity at 1.058 and a Final gravity of 1.017 so I got good Attenuation. But stout or no stout, I like good carbonation. All Extract beer process too. I still need to learn to mini mash one day.

You just relax, and bottle as normal. It doesn't matter if it's higly or lowly flocculant, there's still going to be plenty of yeast to do the job.

007 is a great yeast. You'll be fine with your normal bottling procedure like Revvy said.

Next time you do an IPA or a Pale Ale try the WLP007 on it (at about 65F), you'll love the way the finished product tastes and looks!!
