Just a thought after bottling my latest brew, which I had racked to secondary resulting in a crystal clear beer at bottling. Does this mean that there are less yeast in "solution" and thus it will take longer for this beer to carb? Or are the numbers of yeast high enough even in a clear beer that it doesn't matter?

BTW - I may be a secondary convert after seeing how beautiful this brew looks (not that my others weren't fine looking beers in their own right!) ;)

I usually do 2 weeks primary + 2 weeks secondary, usually very clear beer and I have no problems w/carbonation. RDWHAHB
