You should be fine. There should still be some yeast in suspension after 1.5 months. Also if you're anything like me you're not too precise when siphoning and you probably grabbed some yeast from the yeast cake. I'm very confident that you have viable yeast in the bottles.

That being said I'm not sure about your dextrose/corn sugar addition. A dubbel is usually carbonated more than your average beer. 3.6 oz sounds low if you were brewing a 5 gallon batch. What was the volume of your batch and what type of carbonation are you going for?
