Default cold crash?

I just got a chest freezer and Johnson controller. Should I cold crash my American Stout (split batch with US-05 and Nottingham)? I am bottleing... is cold crashing a concern for bottle conditing? Thanks!

Yes, cold crash everything except beer you want to leave cloudy, i.e,. hefeweisen. Cold crashing is especially good for bottlers.

It's been in a 35F chest freezer for 20 hours. Is that long enough to bottle tonight? Or should I bottle first thing in the morning?
