Inspired to put an amarillo pale ale (my 6th) in glass on day 21. Cold crash just began tonight. Already clear in secondary, and tasted great so hoping this beer turns around many weeks before anything else I've brewed.

Myth: Beer will do anything it can to keep you from drinking it.

You missed the point. Bud is a lager. The lagering period is very short. Despite that fact, it does not taste green, yeasty, or anything else. Arguably, it's one of the cleanest tasting beers you can get.

"Green" is a common brewer's term to describe a beer that is too "young" and needs conditioning time for the flavors to meld or become more mild and pleasant.

It doesn't. It's pasteurized and stabilized, so the flavor profile is relatively fixed at bottling/canning/kegging time.

Does this really work?

once it's carbed do you just bleed until it's at serving pressure?

Yes.

Once it's carbed, I disconnect the gas, purge the headspace, set the regulator to serving pressure, and reattach the gas. The headspace will then equalize at your serving pressure.
