Yep-
Use the temp you did the majority of ferment with. Honestly I just do 0.75-1oz per gallon that I'm bottling and it's all good.

Making The bottles cold is like cold crashing, but if you do it in the fermentor too you just double clarified your beer. It helps a lot.

I think I'm going to try to bottle my second batch today. I've had the fermenting bucket cold crashing in my freezer at 40*F since Thursday night. When I get ready to bottle, could I add the beer straight from the freezer to the bottling bucket or does the beer need to warm to room temp first before transferring?

Hope this helps
Guess I've been doing this wrong for a while now, calculating based on temp @ the time of bottling.

Don't think it made a huge difference but every little bit helps on the hunt for quality beers

Have fun bottling! I use to hate it when I started but after batch #10 it got really easy and I now enjoy bottling as much as I do brewing.

My beer's been in the primary for about 4 weeks. If I keg at 35 degrees and leave the keg in the fridge for 3 weeks is that the same thing as cold crashing?

Cold crash in primary/secondary has an advantage since yeast will drop on bottom of fermentor's and you will siphon clearer beer in keg/bottle.
Cold crashing in keg is similar with the exception that yeast will fall on bottom of the and 1st pint or so will probably be turbid, but after that it will get clear.
