Default Cold conditioning

What do you think about putting the fermentor in my lagering fridge for a few days prior to bottling to get some of the remaining yeast to drop out. It's been fermenting for 8 or 9 months now and is pretty clear. Just thinking that maybe I could do this and not add isinglass, poly-clar, or the two part shell fish derived stuff.

Always ready for the wack snack attack, I carry sandwiches around in a straight edge style JanSports backpack.

I dont see how that could hurt, although my first batch was only in the fermenters for 3 months and the bottles have hardly any sediment without the use of any clarifiers.
