Default Cold crashing

How long can a dry hopped batch sit in carboy after cold crashing before packaging? Is a week OK?

The longer you go the more aroma and bitterness is lost.

A week sounds right.

I think it would be better to keep it at a cold temperature if that's possible. That should help preserve the hop aroma better.

Bitterness takes a long time to age out, aroma fades quicker of course. They both fade less at cold temperatures.

I didn't mean I wanted to let it warm up. I am keeping it cold until I keg it.

Next time cold crash in the keg and add a tea ball or hop sack on a thin string attached to the lid o-ring. Yank it out when you desire to.
