I have bottled my first few batches successfully but this batch is a bock that I lagered. I am worried that there will be enough yeast to bottle condition. Any tips or tricks? I would appreciate any input from more experienced brewers that have lagered beers.

Some people report no trouble bottling after lagering, but others prefer to add 1/3 of a packet of dry yeast to the (*cooled*) priming solution. I've done both and had no trouble, though occasionally I'll get very slow (but ultimately successful) carbonation after long lagering.
