I made a coopers blonde (with the included yeast), which I did with an Amarillo flavour/aroma boil with 500g Dex and DME to adjust gravity.

22/12/2011 - OG: 1.048 @ 21c
28/12/2011 - FG: 1.010. Now @ 0.5c
08/01/2012 - siphoned off yeast cake into secondary, set to .5c.

Getting my kegging rig keeps getting pushed further and further back, so I'm thinking of bottling this batch. If I bring it back up to 20c, will what yeast is left in suspension be enough to still carbonate properly in bottles?


Cheers

No need to raise the temp (prior to bottling - after bottling they will need to be at least the minimum temp the yeast works at). Beer should carbonate fine after 2-3 weeks lagering (presuming I read your dates right)

I think you can bottle cold, with sugar in bottle, and then leave bottles at room temp and all will be fine.

Cheers, gentlemen.

It has been lagering for 3 weeks and was siphoned off the yeast cake half way.

So I can bulk prime and bottle at current (1c) temps and then just allow to rise to 20c~ once bottled. No issues with there not being enough active yeast left?

What about if I used gelatine finnings before priming?
