I'm bottling a barley wine this weekend. It's been in secondary for 3 1/2 months. Do you think I should add some fresh yeast before I bottle?

Since we are now in the end game, it would seem to be the thing to do. Hate to buy a whole other bunch of yeast just to prime though. Maybe brew something else, take the krausen from that, and use that to bottle with.
