I've had a pale ale fermenting for about 5 weeks... 2 weeks in primary, 3 in secondary. Very successful fermentation but I'm wondering if I should add a little yeast for carbonation (I do bottle conditioning) or is there enough still in suspension? I used Nottingham for this brew... I think it's medium flocculation.

Only if it's close to a year or a high grav beer do you need to add more yeast.
