    Secondary fermentation in keg

    Brewed Westmalle Tripel clone several months ago. Racked to keg a month ago. Going to do a secondary fermentation in the keg to add more yeasty deliciousness. Besides adding the yeast should I also add corn sugar to kick off the secondary fermentation? If so how much? Thanks in advance.
