What to do after lager period
I have had a kolsch in the fridge for awhile now and am ready to bottle. This is my first attempt at lagering/cold conditioning and am curious what the next step is.

Should I rack to secondary for a day or two to let it warm back up and wake up the yeast or can I go straight to bottling after letting the temp come up a bit. Will I need to add more yeast?

Thanks for any help,

Just add priming sugar and Cold beer to your bottling bucket and bottle as usual.The yeast will warm up and become more active in the bottles.My Lagers usualy carb up in 2 weeks.no need for more yeast !
