Default Bottling After Baby! Help!

So I had a batch timed to be ready for the birth of my son. Well he decided he had reached FG a few weeks before the beer! So now it's been in primary (in his nursery ) for about four months. I finally have an afternoon free to bottle (tomorrow).

The question- do I need to add some yeast at bottling? It's Palmers elevenses PM kit from NB. Used S-04.

Thanks!

You should be good to bottle without add yeast.

First of all, congrats on your baby boy. I liked your FG analogy

I have gotten lucky several times in not adding bottling yeast and still getting great carbonation. Several high gravity brews that sat in secondary for months.

I bottled a 12% barleywine in January though without adding any yeast. And that one did not carb after several months. I had to pop the caps, sprinkle in some dry yeast, and recap. Would have been easier to add 1/4 packet to the bottling bucket and call it good.

There will still be plenty of yeast in suspension to bottle condition.
