Default Adding wine yeast to Lambic at bottling

I plan on bottling a Lambic this weekend, and was going to pick up a pack of wine yeast to add beforehand. My question is, when should I add it? When I rack into the bottling bucket? Should I add it the night before? Rehydrate or just dump the whole packet in dry?

Thanks!

I usually add rehydrated yeast to the bottom of the bottling bucket then rack on top of it. This seems to mix the yeast in evenly.

That's what I was thinking about doing. Thanks for the input!
