Default Does Crash Cooling Effect Bottle Conditioning?

I have a Kolsch in primary right now, and I'm thinking that crash cooling when it comes to secondary time would help clarify a bit - but does crash cooling drop out too many yeast to allow for proper conditioning?

All the research I've done points me to discussions from people who only keg/force carbonate their beer.

I bottle in 22 ouncers.

I've had good experience with getting carbonation after crash cooling and even lagering, but you could always add just a pinch of rehydrated yeast to your bottling bucket with the priming sugar (after the priming solution has cooled) to be sure.

How much is "just a pinch"? How long do you crash cool? Do you let the beer come to room temp before pitching the pinch?

I've crash cooled (4days) and used gelatin on a beer last month. Took a month to carbonate. Came out just fine. Just plan on an extra week (or 2 with 22 oz.) and you'll be fine.
