Default Priming after gelatine

Will I need to repitch some yeast to bottle condition a 1.070 SG to 1.008 FG ale using safbrew T 58 10 days Then lagering on notingham @45 F for a week with 1/2 tsp Gelatine for finning?

P.S. I am not one of those completely anal brewers you know... you must cut off your left nut if it touches any cane sugar etc.

Not sure exactly where you're coming from....you don't ever want to add yeast after initial pitch...and especially not before bottling, although it probably wouldn't do anything at all; there's already yeast in it.....

You shouldn't need to repitch. If I'm understanding correctly, it's been fermenting for less than 3 weeks.

As far as the gelatine, I don't use fining or find it necessary. I doubt that it is so effective that literally *all* of the yeast would precipitate out, thus necessitating adding more yeast. It's just ground up bones and hooves after all

That's not really true. Germans add a yeast to their Hefe Weizen prior to bottling.

...and did you forget about kreusening?...

Thanks Janx thats exactly what I was getting at. It was my first time using gelatine. I would definitly recomend it, although I will not be cracking one till this weekend. I've never had a beer this clear ( I use grolsch bottles)
