Gracefully restart logstash after adding an additional pipeline

Hi All,
in my logstash.yml I enabled the config.reload.automatic: True and doing it every 30s config.reload.interval: 30s.
So now I started adding new pipelines in my pipeline.yml.
Once I add a pipeline what I usually do is kill -9 PID in order to restart the whole logstash process. I tried with kill -1 PID in order to check if logstash is going to fire up my newly created pipeline but no joy. Also it seems that if I do not do anything logstash won't start/restart my new pipeline automatically no matter that auto reload is enabled?

Is there an easier way for me to tell Logstash not to restart but to only start newly created pipelines (without killing the whole process every time)?
