Default Lagering to Bottling... do I need to get it back to room temp?

Or can I just bottle with it still at the lager temp (38)?

The reason I ask is will the priming sugar adequately dissolve if the beer is still at 38 degrees?

I let my beers stabilize to room temp when bottling my Lagers, then take a temp reading and caclulate my priming sugar for that temp....

So I would take it out, and set it aside for 3-4 hours and let it warm upp.

Just dissolve the priming sugar in 1/2 cup of hot water.
