I just got done racking my first brew to my secondary fermenter (brewing a Alt Bier) where it will be sitting for about 10 days or so. The question I have is when I bottle will there be enough yeast cells to carbonate it or am I going to have to pitch some extra yeast. Just wondering because most of the sediment in the bottom of the primary stayed and didn't know if enough yeast made it over. Thanks for the help guys without this forum I wouldn't have made it this far.

Plenty of yeast to carbonate. I've left beers for 8 months in secondaries and carbonated in bottles just fine.

Yeah that was what I was hoping for. I guess I was just a little worried with this first one. Thanks.

Even if you're beer looks clear as water, there's still tons of little tiny yeasties swimming around in it. Unless you filter, let it sit for months and months on end, or do some serious long term cold crashing I wouldn't worry a bit.
