Default Bottled from keg but beer flat can I use the coopers tabs to re-carb

The title says it all! I had just a few pints left in a keg that I wanted to save so I pulled the keg and let it sit for a while. I then needed the keg and didnít chill it again I just used the "no stinking beer gun" method that I used before with no issues. Unfortunately since the keg was now warm and foamed like a mofo all the bottles that I opened were 90% flat. I donít want to keg just the 10 bottles that are left so could I just open the bottles and drop a few tabs in and seal them back up? Do you think enough yeast would be left to carb them?

Thanks

Ryan

Yes, carbtabs will do the job and there will be yeast. Chill them first to reduce foaming, then warm them up after re-capping. Removing all the yeast from beer isn't something that can be done in your home.
