Hello all! I brewed a kit from Northern Brewer, Dawson's Kriek, back in September of 2012. I'm wanting to bottle it up now in regular crown cap bottles. My question is, do I need to add fresh yeast, or will the residual yeast/bugs from the 3278 Lambic blend be sufficient?

I am about ready to bottle mine. From my research I will be using 2 Grams of Us-05 with 3.2 oz of corn sugar (2.1 X carbonation). This is for a 5 gallon batch.

You could add some partially fermented younger lambic. Probably more advanced than what you want to do, but it would taste great

I'd go with the sugar and a dash of fresh yeast.
Check out my new blog brouwerijchuchach for information on fermenting beer, baking bread, pizza, and other experiments.

I follow Mike's advice in this thread and found that it works well:
