Default how to bottle 3 year old lambic

My neighbor just gave me a 5 gallon carboy filled with lambic because he is moving and doesn't have room for it. The label says: Poison Door Kriek, Brewed 5/29/09 pitch lambic blend 8/9/09, Belgian wheat and Belgian lambic blend. It's filled to the top with pellicle on top. I don't have a way to force carbonate it and I'm sure the yeast is dead so how can I bottle carbonate it?

Pitch some yeast into it (I use the EC-1118 champagne yeast) a day or so before you are going to bottle. Then bottle with priming sugar. Lambics are lower carb then other beer.

Of course you live in Portland.

If you get the dry champagne or wine yeast just bottle as you normally would and toss in a few dry cells before capping or corking, whichever you are doing. It will be ready to consume in the usual 2-3 weeks.

I have two year old lambic. It definitely calls out to me every time I'm in my fermentation room.

Can I just rehydrate some champagne yeast and add it to the bottling bucket with priming sugar? It sounds like champagne yeast is the way to go.

You'd be a douche if you didn't get his forwarding address and send him a few bottles. Just sayin'....
