A brewed a barleywine about six months ago and at the time did not know you should add champagne yeast at bottling time. I opened a couple of them and they are flat. I have heard you can open each and add a few grains of champagne yeast. My question is how much? I do not want to make it too carbonated.

Don't worry too much about the amount of yeast. I would rehydrate a packet of champagne yeast in warm water and use a sanitized eyedropper to put about 5-10 ml in each bottle.
