Wondering if I need to add some dry US-05 to the bottling bucket on this one. I've never had to do this yet, but last night the ambient temps dropped to 64 from 75.
This is a Pumpkin Spice Ale with wlp002 that has been in primary for 3 weeks. I fermented at 67–68 in a water bath and pulled it out after 2 weeks to free up the water bath for two more batches. The last week it's been in ambient temps of 70–75.
I was going to bottle yesterday at 75, and made the priming sugar based on 75 temps, but it got put off and I'm planning to bottle today. Last night, though, I left the window open and the temps dropped to 64 this morning. This is a highly flocculent yeast so I'm wondering if I need to add some dry to the bottling bucket, or should there still be enough yeast in suspension to bottle condition. Maybe I'll even get a slightly clearer beer?
If adding dry to the bucket, I would probably do 1/3 to 1/2 packet. Would I want to rehydrate it first?
