Won't drop enough yeast . . .well it will if you leave it to long, but you don't need to do that. Real wheat yeasts don't flocculate all that well . . .even if you crash cool . . .I normally leave it 24-36 hours before bottling.

What would you recommend using as a primer? How much per 500ml bottle?

Sorry I am new to bottling as I have always used kegs in the dim and distant past (IIRC I used white sugar then) and since restarting a year or so ago I do AG and keg in a corny have not primed.

OK. brewed and bottled for the last 2 weeks.

I have just tried a bottles and it tastes nice thogh it really does not seem to have much in the way of a head. I wonder it I have added enough priming sugar. Should I add some more?

Other than not having much of a head, is it fizzy? Is it head formation or head retention that is the problem? How much priming sugar did you use? Did you cold condition it?
