Default Is there enough yeast?

I was wondering if there is enough yeast for carbonation? I primaried for 3 weeks and dry hopped for 5 weeks in secondary. The reason for so long is that I am an otr truck driver and only come home around every 3 weeks.The one good thing is it should be ready to drink when i get back home. I put it in the cellar, temp stays arond 75 in summer months. thanks.

An extra 3 weeks won't negatively affect the finished product--quite the opposite actually.

But yes, as long as you went through the normal method for carbonating bottles (priming solution), there's enough yeasties.

Shouldn't be a problem. Just remember to keep those bottles in a dark, cool place.
