Hey everybody.

I just bottled my first ale (as I was talking about here: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/showthread.php?t=54618a ), and it ended up looking very clear as in not cloudy at all. I am kind of worried that there may not be enough yeast to carry out the carbonation.

What has been your experience with bottle carbonation and do you recommend that I do anything?

Of all the brews I've made, none have never not carbonated. It only takes a very small amount of yeast to do the job. Just follow the plans that you have made and wait. All should be fine.

It'll be fine. yeast is a micro organism. just because the beer looks clear, doesn't mean there's no yeast left in suspension...just not enough to cloud the beer up.
