I've got a Dopplebock that's been lagering 3 months now and is ready for bottles. The trick is I will have to add more yeast with the priming agent.

There are two ways I can do this and was wondering if the collective could offer their opinion?

#1 use dry nottingham and condition in the cellar. This strain is very clean and lager like the only problem is the packs I have are out of date EXP. 2000. Although I have used them in a pinch and they work well.

#2 I have the bock lager strain which can be cultured up and used, that way its the same yeast. Of course this would mean longer aging and perhaps even a second lagering?

Thoughts? I'm leaning towards the dry idea just because it will take less effort........

I think two packs of rehydrated Nottingham will do the job, even if they are out of date (assuming they have not been mishandled).

Another vote for the Nottingham.
