I have a barleywine that has been bulk conditioning for a few months in a keg. I was just going to force carb and bottle but...I always end up losing some to foam. It got me thinking about just priming with some sugar in the keg, rolling gently to mix it up, and then fill bottles through a sanitized BMBF. I would keep the keg charged with 5 psi during the mixing phase so no worries with oxidation. It would make filling bottles a piece of cake!! Do any of you do this?
I was also wondering if I need to add fresh yeast? It is only a 9.1% BW but it has been sitting for a few months in the keg. I was thinking of essentially making my priming solution just like a small starter. Pitching a small amount of dried yeast (05?) if needed. Any advice?
