Default Repitching Before Bottling - How Much Yeast From Culture

Beer: Three Philosopher's Clone
OG 1.090
Age: Approx 2 months

So when I started my Three Philosopher's Clone I started a mini starter from the primary starter to save the yeast so I could repitch some at bottling time or save it for another batch. I just made another starter with the mini starter (mini starter actually tastes great for an unhopped beer so I know it's good).

I know guys use 1/4 of a satchel of dry yeast when repitching at bottling normally, but how much fresh liquid yeast would that equate too? Should I just grab a sanitized dessert spoon and drop a glob of that fresh yeast in the bottling bucket?

Primary: Yooper_Brew's Dead Guy Clone, BierMuncher's Black Pearl Porter
Kegged: BierMuncher's OktoberFAST Ale, Pliney the Elder Clone

That'd be plenty, yes. More won't hurt, it'll just wind up on the bottom of the bottles.

It's only 2 months old, there will be plenty of yeast in the beer, no need to add any.
