Default Cold crashed beer

I cold crashed a beer for a week to settle a yeast cake that had broken up and was floating in the beer.

My concern now is the beer won't bottle carb. If I rack it to my bottle bucket with priming sugar will it be ok or should I add a pinch of some neutral champagne yeast like EC to help the carb along?

There are still more than enough yeast in suspension to carb your bottles. No worries. Worse case scenario, it might take a week more to carbonate.

the only yeast i have EVER had problems carbing after cold crashing is whitelabs kolsch yeast and only when i leave it at cold temps for over a month....what yeast did you use? If your ever really worried because it dropped "crystal clear", you can always add a SMALL amount at bottling. It won't hurt but at the same time is usually unnessesary and an extra cost...
