Default No carbonation/Re-bottle

So my buddy and i bottled a Peach Ale 3 months ago, still very little carbonation. I dont wanna waste this batch, so i was thinking of putting them back into a bottling bucket and re bottling them. If i do this should i add a new packet of yeast and try it over? any advice would be greatly appreciated, cheers!

I am by no means an expert, but I would NOT pour them back into the bucket. You risk oxidizing the beer. I would just add some sugar directly to the bottles and recap them, shake/swirl them to dissolve the sugar, and wait some more...

I am interested to see what others say on this too...

Buy some carbonation tabs, uncap, drop them in, then recap.

This ^^^^^^^. If you pour them back into a bottling bucket, you'll very likely oxidize the beer enough that it will go stale quickly (imagine wet cardboard taste).
