Default Is yeast needed When bottling after long term storage?

I have a blonde ale that I brewed and wasn't able to get to, it's been sitting in the secondary for about 6 months. When I bottle it, hopefully in the next few weeks, will there be any need to add fresh yeast in order to prime it? I imagine the yeast that are dormant will reactivate with the corn sugar, but I'm not a microbiologist!

Thanks,
Parker

it should be fine,just give it time to condition once it is bottled.

If you do repitch, use a dry yeast (cheap, bottling yeast doesn't add flavor) and make sure it attenuates less than the original, or it could dry out the beer. It can't hurt and only costs a couple of bucks to repitch at bottling. But it is likely unnecessary.
