I just finished a batch of a Chamay knockoff. It reached the expected FG and i wanted to leave it sit in the fermenting bucket or possibly a carboy for another week or so to clear. Is there a point where it will be necessary to add some more yeast before bottling? If so, how can I tell when that point has come?

I have bottled quite a few batches that were 9 months and older. This includes 3 or 4 of our Brut champagne beer, which were primed to achieve in the area of 5 volumes of CO2. If your yeast was healthy when you started, a couple of months is not a problem.
