Default Bottling Koelsch

After letting the Koelsch sit near 30 degrees for a month, is there enough yeast left in suspension to carbonate it when I bottle it?

Option 1: just bottle it and assume there are yeast there
Option 2: stir up the flocculated yeast from the cake
Option 3: add some yeast (champagne?)

Advice?

you'll have plenty of yeast. you will stir up yeast in the racking process anyway.

With my lagers, I add a 1/4 to 1/2 pack of dry yeast at bottling.
Whatever I have, usually US-05.

Extra yeast can't cause bottle bombs. Only too much sugar can do that. Just FYI.
