I've produced a batch of peach mead that I believe has no residual yeast in it (evidence: added a bit more honey to sweeten after the peach puree and cinnamon, and there were no bubbles at all for a few days). How would I go about trying to get some carbonation when I bottle?

As @VikeMan suggested. Add yeast 1 gram per gallon mixed well into your mead prior to bottling should do or a very small pinch into each bottle- Check your SG first to ensure there is sugar for them to eat. If not at 1.004, add priming sugar or honey.

1 gram for the entire batch will be fine. Use CBC 1
