I meant to add a tablespoon of whole wheat flour to my Blue Moon clone during the last few minutes of the boil to ensure cloudiness in the bottle but forgot. Is it too late to boil some water, dissolve flour in it and add it when I rack to secondary or the bottling bucket? Or should I just make sure a little extra yeast makes it in to the bottling bucket (maybe mix the flour in when i boil the priming sugar)?

The flour trick is only necessary when you intend to keg it. For bottles, just give it a swirl when you pour.
